Major League Baseball in San Antonio, Texas? Wounded Eagle introduces you to the players and coaches who have launched a new MLB franchise deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Join the many fans who applaud the success of their beloved San Antonio Eagles on the baseball diamond and feel the pain of these gifted athletes as they struggle with life beyond the foul poles. After a successful playing career and more than twenty years managing the Eagles, Randy Dobson is stepping down from his post. His likely successor is Bill Simons, a former star pitcher with the Eagles and currently manager for San Antonio's AAA team in Austin. The owners' decision would be made easier were it not for the history of irascible behavior that sullies Simons' reputation. "Unless you have spent years playing the game at the professional level, you cannot imagine the challenges these athletes face in bringing their lives into balance." Nolan Ryan, a member of Major League Baseball's Hall of Fame J. Terry Johnson, a native of Springfield, Missouri, now resides in the Texas Hill Country. After a thirty-two year career at Oklahoma Christian University, Johnson retired to his home in Horseshoe Bay, Texas. He has authored nine books since retirement and has others at various stages in their development. An avid baseball fan, Johnson has returned to his favorite theme in Wounded Eagle, but has added a human dimension that goes well beyond his previous writings.
