A story for baseball lovers and fans of Mike Lupica and Tim Green!

Hal has to get out from under his father’s shadow. Hal Stevens has always been compared to his father, a superstar third baseman and power hitter. But Hal doesn’t have his father’s build and strength. When his new baseball coach moves him to second base and hands him a lighter bat, Hal discovers his real abilities—and finds himself faced with an angry second baseman, who is sure Hal got the spot because of his father. Can Hal prove him wrong?

“Baseball fans will love the play-by-play descriptions of games, and Hal’s struggles . . . will appeal to an even wider audience.”—Booklist
