SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Former Santa Barbara Foresters baseball player Andrew Luria is hoping to bring some sports history into the lives of kids in his first published book, The Adventures of Charlie Marley: Midnight's Moment in Time.
The book is a time traveling sports adventure book geared to kids around 9 to 13 years of age.
The story is about two 12-year-olds who meet up with an ex-ballplayer turned inventor.
The inventor did not have a good ending to his baseball career and he and the kids want to go back in time to right the wrong of his life.
But his time-traveling calculations are as bad as his swing and they end up in a bunch of other great moments in sports history like Babe Ruth and his called home run shot.
Luria played with the Foresters for two summer seasons (2000-2001) and was an All-Ivy League performer at Cornell University.
Luria is now an Emmy award-winning news anchor in San Diego for Fox 5.
