Product Description

Tyler tries to watch his step, but every time he thinks he has his temper under control, boom! he winds up in a fight. If he isn't careful, his dreams of making the All-Star team and being noticed by a scout are going to blow up, too. But Tyler's coach isn't about to let that happen. A Vietnam War veteran, Coach Trioli has seen anger destroy enough people. He knows that if Tyler is ever going to become the ballplayer he dreams of becoming, he'll have to learn to fight his battles with his glove, his bat, and his love for the game. Not with his fists. But it all comes down to Tyler. Does he care enough about the future to work through the past?

Author Bio

John Ritter has written many books and numerous short stories for young adult readers. His first novel, Choosing Up Sides, won the 1999 International Reading Association Children’s Book Award for Older Readers and was designated an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults. Kirkus Reviews praised Choosing Up Sides—which attacked the once-prevalent views of religious fundamentalists toward left-handed children—as "No ordinary baseball book, this is a rare first novel." In 2004, Ritter received the Paterson Prize for Books for Young People for his third novel, The Boy Who Saved Baseball.
