Tim Green's thrilling Baseball Great books are perfect for middle-grade readers, and this collection contains three bestselling novels in the series.
Baseball Great: Josh feels like he's starting to make it big! Jaden, the school reporter, says he's going to take the baseball team to number one. Then his dad pulls him off the field and signs him up with Coach Rocky Valentine's youth championship team, the Titans. Now Josh is gulping down Rocky's "Super Stax" milkshakes to build muscle and trying to fit in with his new teammates. All Josh really wants to do is play ball, but as he gets in deeper with the Titans, Josh and his new friend Jaden find themselves in a dangerous struggle with a desperate man who doesn't want them to expose the nasty secrets they uncover.
Rivals: New York Times bestselling author Tim Green delivers a hard-hitting look at what some teams will do to win in this gripping companion to Baseball Great. Josh is thrilled when all his hard training pays off in a big way and his team, the Titans, makes it to a national tournament in Cooperstown, home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. But after a dirty play and a brutal injury threaten to sideline Josh, he spies suspicious activity at the tournament. He tries to tell his good friend Jaden about what he's seen, but she's too busy spending time with the L.A. Comets' star player to want to get involved. Jaden says she's doing research for the newspaper . . . but is she?
Best of the Best: Josh is still flying high from his team's tournament win when his parents start talking about a divorce. Now his dad is challenging him to play the best of the best at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. But does he just want to get Josh out of the way. With the help of Benji and Jaden, Josh races to get the facts that can keep his family together—but it's ever harder to concentrate on the game and make the winning plays that will lead his team to victory.
