Everything changes for Ryan on Opening Day, when she goes to Wrigley Field to try and scalp a ticket. Though she ends
up having to enjoy the game outside of the stadium, it’s all worth it, for that day is when she really meets the new kid at

From then on, they have a relationship that builds quickly based on things like baseball and knowing when to just be silent

THE COMEBACK SEASON was an amazing story about getting through the tough times in life to make it to the other

learning how to live and thrive during the good and bad times.
