Synopsis

Jimmy Winter is a born star on the baseballfield, and Seth Barnam can only dream of being as talented. Still, the two baseball fanatics have the kind of friendship that should last forever. But when Seth experiences an unthinkable loss, he's forced to find his own personal strength--on and off the field.

Annotation

Seth faces a strain on his friendship with Jimmy, who is both a baseball champion and something of an irresponsible fool, when Jimmy is kicked off the team.

Publishers Weekly

This compelling tale of baseball and friendship, PW said, "hits a home run'' with its action worthy of the sports page. Ages 12-up. (May)
