Eli – The Phenom’s Story

Eli Weaver is 19 years old.

He has lived his entire life within 10 miles of his home near Mt. Hope, Ohio.

He is a farmer. A carpenter. A horse trader. A blacksmith.

…and every Saturday afternoon – a ballplayer.

Eli Weaver is Amish.

His father sees him as a blessing from God – ensuring the future of his family’s farm.

A major league scout sees in Eli God-given talents that can’t be taught.

What happens when a young man with an 18th century upbringing, steps into the 20th century world?
