Church and State is set in St. Paul, where a Catholic governor faces tragedy and decision. While at loggerheads with his own party, an unexpected development occurs in Washington which promises to change Marty Walsh's life. A short distance from the Governor's Mansion is St. Brendan's College, where shortstop prospect Eddie Malone meets George Steinbrenner, and is asked to work out with the New York Yankees. Clare Hogan, a senior religion teacher at Immaculata High School, causes the governor and the short-stop to disinter a twenty year old event.
