Stealing Home Book Summary : A story about baseball, family, the American Dream, and the fight to turn Los Angeles into a big league city. Dodger Stadium is an American icon. But the story of how it came to be goes far beyond baseball. The hills that cradle the stadium were once home to three vibrant Mexican American communities. In the early 1950s, those communities were condemned to make way for a utopian public housing project. Then, in a remarkable turn, public housing in the city was defeated amidst a Red Scare conspiracy. Instead of getting their homes back, the remaining residents saw the city sell their land to Walter O'Malley, the owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Now LA would be getting a different sort of utopian fantasy -- a glittering, ultra-modern stadium. But before Dodger Stadium could be built, the city would have to face down the neighborhood's families -- including one, the Aréchigas, who refused to yield their home. The ensuing confrontation captivated the nation - and the divisive outcome still echoes through Los Angeles today.

Stealing Home a Con s Guide to Inheritance Theft Book Summary : When parents become unable to protect their assets due to infirmity or death, your inheritance is vulnerable. Usernames, passwords, certificates of title, deeds, identification cards, and physical possession is all that stands between your inheritance and cons. Parents plan for incapacity and death by going to an attorney for a will, trust, and power of attorney. While those instruments are useful for managing and transferring assets, they are useless in protecting them against theft. Instead, they create greater vulnerability because they must be carried out by someone else and are easily amended, revoked, and obtained by cons through manipulation and forgery. Cons hide in plain sight while planning strategies to steal your inheritance. They blend well because cons never look like cons. They look like your friends, relatives, and neighbors. They resemble your trusted accountant, investment advisor and minister. They are also perfect strangers. Once they decide to steal an inheritance, cons are relentless. They don't stop until everything is taken. This book brings awareness to inheritance theft. It also reveals six steps to wiping out an entire estate. Becoming familiar with those steps will help you identify cons, detect suspicious behavior, and take preventive action before it's too late.

Stealing Home Book Summary : Four individuals, each living in haunted isolation, and each harboring a secret passion come together in this novel by Christy Award finalist Allison K. Pittman. It’s 1905 and the Chicago Cubs are banking on superstar Donald “Duke” Dennison’s golden arm to help them win the pennant. Only one thing stands between Duke and an unprecedented ten thousand dollar contract: alcohol. When sportswriter David Voyant whisks Duke to the one-horse town of Picksville, Missouri, so he can sober up in anonymity, Duke bides his time flirting with Ellie Jane Voyant, his unofficial chaperone, who would rather hide herself in the railway station ticket booth than face the echoes of childhood taunts. Ned Clovis, the feed store clerk, has secretly loved Ellie Jane since childhood, but he loves baseball and the Duke almost as much--until he notices Ellie Jane may be succumbing to the star’s charm. Then there’s Morris, a twelve-year-old Negro boy, whose only dream is to break away from Picksville. When Duke discovers his innate talent for throwing a baseball, Morris might just have found his way out. Providence brings them together. Tragedy threatens to tear them apart. Will love be enough to bring them home?

Stealing Home Book Summary : Fourteen-year-old Cody Martin is up to bat, and the pitcher is none other than "Madman" Madison, master of the 70-mile-per-hour blazer. It's been a rough season with more losses than wins, and the game is a squeaker when Cody's win-crazy coach insists he "take one for the team."

In the end Cody learns that while some sacrifices result in pain, others lead to healing.
