After a second world championship in four years, the Boston Red Sox have finally buried the Curse of the Bambino-or have they? Red Sox owner Louis Kenwood receives an extortion note signed "Babe Ruth" claiming that the 2004 World Series was fixed, and demanding $20 million to keep the information from the press and the commissioner's office. If the allegation of a fix becomes public, Kenwood fears irreparable damage to the value of his franchise and to his legacy as "Lucky Louie," the man who finally brought a championship to Boston after eighty-six years. Thus, the Red Sox turn to private detective Sam Skarda to find out who's behind the extortion plot.
