Summer is around the corner, and Little League first baseman, Billy Kramer, is looking forward to playing another year with the LA Southgate Sharks. His plans are uprooted when his mother announces an unexpected move to rural Bennington, Nebraska. Billy's world is turned upside down.
Billy hoped to find a new team that could compete at the same level as his former team. He soon finds that Bennington's local team, the Bunz Town Badgers, is composed of below-average players who haven't won a game in two years.
Recognizing Billy's talent, the coach sends him to the Omaha Outlaws, believing he should be with players matching his skill level.
Billy quickly realizes he must make a choice: playing for a polished team with questionable motives or playing with a team of friends who love the sport.
Will this star athlete have what it takes to make some tough decisions?

THE HIGH CHEESE!
My son is 9 and has never enjoyed reading.. or being read to.. We started and he never asked to stop, but he did ask to keep going. We finished in 2 sessions… He loves the game of baseball, with his dad always coaching, and the team knowing me as “dug out mom,” and not by name, he was able to relate to Billy. He finally was able use his imagination as if it was real life. He loved the values being taught in the story, as he encouraged Billy before he knew his choices… A story for any parent that has a child playing sports… we often forget they are children, this is a great reminder!
Purchased for our Grandsons. I try to read any book before I gift to our Grands and I loved it. Christmas gift so will see if our Grands love it. Quick and wonderful service.
My 9 year old loved.
