White Heat C.C. Risenhoover 1992 HB DJ 1st Prt. Stated Pub. Baskerville Publishers, LTD. ISBN 0-9627509-3-X A novel about life and sports, in that order. Set in the early 1950's the book puts a microscope on the social pressures of that era. Randy Joe Keegan pitching for an otherwise all-black semi-pro baseball team, then it flashes back to the sleepy little East Texas town of Jason, where Randy Joe is learning the hard facts about life as a logger. He is driven to be the best at whatever he does, felling trees or pitching a baseball at 100 miles-per-hour. The characters, black and white, are often heroic, frequently flawed. Readers who are not baseball fans will remember them, those who love baseball will revel in the presentation of the most poetic of America's games.
