An obnoxious baseball team owner, an influential state governor and a ripped-from-the-headlines cast of ballplayers, politicians and lobbyists twist arms in the Florida Legislature over a controversial taxpayer-funded stadium proposal in downtown Orlando.
"Payoff Pitch" takes an inside look at professional baseball and a behind the scenes view of high-stakes political deal-making.
After years of futility and playing baseball in a rotting stadium, the Orlando Sunspots and their bloated owner make a final run at persuading the Florida legislature to construct a new taxpayer-funded downtown stadium.
For Charlie Davis, the aging Florida Governor, his legacy is at stake as he tries to keep the Sunspots from relocating with an attractive financing offer, courtesy of Las Vegas leaders.
High-powered politicians, uncontrollable athletes and a sexy cast of lobbyists play for keeps in the Sunshine State - while a franchise and multiple political careers hang in the balance.
What follows is a zany, off-beat tale of political deal-making and hard-knocks baseball that almost seems too life-like to be labeled fiction.
