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?
