Publisher's Summary

Award-winning journalist and ESPN personality Mike Lupica crafts a moving novel about baseball, sacrifice, and father/son relationships.

Hutch has always played shortstop. His idol Derek Jeter, plays the position, and more importantly, so did his father. But when a better shortstop joins the team, Hutch must move to second base. With his father's shadow looming and the championship on the line, Hutch will need to make the adjustment quickly.

loved the book. Seemed to always have a educated moment. Liked how evry chapter brought a new struggle or indifference to the plate.

Great book to listen to with my 8 year old

This was a book my 8 year old and I enjoyed together. I would think that this book would typically of interest to older kids and adults who enjoy baseball. My right year old is obsessed with sports and was completely absorbed. Very glad I purchased. Naration was great.
