From the Publisher:
Two teams, six innings, one game.
A lively cast of characters—baseball-loving boys between the ages of eleven to thirteen—are playing the biggest game of their lives. With acrobatic catches, clutch hits, dramatic whiffs, and costly errors, this game is full of action. But as the book unfolds, pitch by pitch, a deeper story emerges, with far more at stake: Sam and Mike, best friends, are trying to come to terms with Sam’s newly diagnosed cancer. And this baseball diamond becomes the ultimate testing ground of Sam and Mike’s remarkable friendship as they strive to find a way to both come out winners.
|This is for the championship.
|This is for life.
"If Judy Blume could write a book about Little League, about its players' deepest fears and secret dreams, it might come out something like this." 3/24/2008
