An unlikely friendship slowly develops between a former baseball great in need of a family and the 14-year-old batboy in need of a father, in Lupica''s most powerful and kid-friendly work to date.
From the Publisher:
Brian is living every baseball kid's dream: he is a batboy for his hometown Major League team. Brian believes that it's the perfect thing to bring him and his big-leaguer dad closer together. And if that werenÕt enough, this is the season that Hank Bishop, BrianÕs baseball hero, returns to the Tigers for the comeback of a lifetime. The summer couldn't get much better! Until Hank Bishop starts to show his true colors, and Brian learns that sometimes life throws you a curveball.
Annotation:
As the batboy for a Major League team, Brian has the opportunity that any 14-year-old baseball fanatic would kill for. But what he really wants is his father back. Sadly, that is not something Brian can control, but when baseball legend Hank Bishop befriends Brian, he finds the nurturing relationship that is missing. Mike Lupica is the author of many bestselling middle grade novels about sports, including HEAT.
