Publisher's Summary

Cooperstown! 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. More is on the line for Josh than just a trophy, though. Winning would mean everything to his dad, now Josh's coach. Winning could mean a major endorsement deal for the Titans and the attention of Big League scouts!

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, Mickey Mullen Jr., to want to get involved. Jaden says she's doing research for the newspaper...but is she? Now Josh has a rival, both on the field and off, as he swings for the fences in a game that quickly becomes more dangerous.

New York Times best-selling author Tim Green delivers a hard-hitting look at what some teams will do to win in this gripping companion to Baseball Great.

Critic Reviews

"A highlight of the book is the banter between Josh and Benji, much of which is genuinely hilarious. Real baseball aficionados will appreciate the treatment of some of the more subtle nuances of the game. Enjoyable, unpretentious escapism for youngsters, especially reluctant readers." ( School Library Journal)
"Josh and his budding-reporter friend, Jaden, foil the plan with the help of Bob Costas, who makes a brief guest appearance as sportscaster and crime stopper. Once again, Green effectively blends exciting sports and adventure." ( Booklist)
