The baseball diamond provides Theodore Cobb Hunter his only true sanctuary. Named after a trio of legends and the top player in baseball, he is positioned to cash in on a record breaking free agent contract.

Can the influence of one man satisfy the expectations of the legends of past decades? Or will his unrelenting burden drive him to the brink as the torturous spirits that push him unveil their true purpose? Immortal is an engrossing tale of a premier athlete asked to be so much more than a sports hero. The game and the country’s immutable traditions run in harmony and one man just might be responsible for saving both.
