hates his new life in Dullsville, Maryland, aka Baltimore, where
he''s a target okay, abigtarget for brutal
teasing. But he loves baseball. And despite his size, he plays
third base like a dream. Too bad he''s competing for the starting
job on the Orioles of the Dulaney Babe Ruth League against budding
hoodlum Dante Rizzo, who vows to squeeze Cody''s head like a grape
if he beats him out. Life gets even more complicated when Cody''s
school, York Middle, is beset by a rash of mysterious thefts, a
crime wave that threatens to sideline Cody and ruin a golden season
for the Orioles. Will Cody ever succeed in getting people to see
him for who he really is?
