Connor Sullivan is an All-Star shortstop on his Babe Ruth team, the Orioles. He can hit and field with the best of them, but he''s got one big problem: his temper. When he strikes out or makes an error, he''s a walking Mt. Vesuvius, slamming batting helmets and throwing gloves. His teammates are starting to avoid him, even his best friend Jordy. His coach is ready to kick him off the team.



To make matters worse, things aren''t much better at home. His dad is having trouble finding a new job after being laid off. Money is tight. Connor''s dream of attending the prestigious Brooks Robinson Baseball Camp this summer seems like just that now - a dream.


When the sports editor of the school paper threatens to do a big story on his tantrums - complete with embarassing photos - Connor realizes he has to clean up his act. But can he do it in time to regain his teammates'' trust and help the Orioles win the championship against the best team in the league?
