Publisher Comments:

For Hutch, shortstop has always been home. Itas where his father once played professionally, before injuries relegated him to watching games on TV instead of playing them. And itas where Hutch himself has always played and starred. Until now. The arrival of Darryl aD-Willa Williams, the top shortstop prospect from Florida since A-Rod, means Hutch is displaced, in more ways than one. Second base feels like second fiddle, and when he sees his father giving fielding tips to D-Willathe same father who canat be bothered to show up to watch his son playaHutch feels betrayed. With the summer league championship on the line, just how far is Hutch willing to bend to be a good teammate?

Mike Lupica returns to the big field for the first time since his #1 New York Times bestseller Heat and delivers a feel-good home run, showing how love of the game is a language fathers and sons speak from the heart.

Synopsis:

The author of the #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Heat" returns to America's favorite pastime of baseball and delivers a feel-good story that shows how love of the game is a common language fathers and sons speak.

Playing shortstop is a way of life for Hutch?not only is his hero, Derek Jeter, a shortstop, but so was his father, a former local legend turned pro. Which is why having to play second base feels like demotion to second team. Yet that?s where Hutch ends up after Darryl ?D-Will? Williams, the best shortstop prospect since A-Rod, joins the team. But Hutch is nothing if not a team player, and he?s cool with playing in D-Will?s shadow?until, that is, the two shortstops in Hutch?s life betray him in a way he never could have imagined. With the league championship on the line, just how far is Hutch willing to bend to be a good teammate?

Hutch (a boy who dreams of playing pro baseball) has been playing shortstop for a long time, but now another kid on his team is. The kid's name is Darryl who likes to show off and thinks he is the best. He then proceeds to steal Hutch's dad that Hutch has wanted to play baseball with for his whole life. Hutch has to get this conflict resolved before it is to late. I think the theme in this story is to be yourself and try you hardest. Also, sportsmanship with your own team. I really enjoyed this book because there is a lot of action, adventure, and it is a great story. I would give this 5.
