Product description

Raw, rough, real: how it feels to be down and get back up again. A hard-flying stray baseball injures Jack. Dare he get back in the game? Sixth-grader Jack Mogens has it all figured out. He’s got his batting routine down pat, and his outfielding earns him a starting spot on his Little League team, the Tall Pines Braves. He even manages to have a not-totally-embarrassing conversation with Katie, the team’s killer shortstop. That is, until a powerful stray pitch brings Jack’s hard work crashing down around his ears. Baseball has always been his passion. How can he explain to his parents and friends that he won’t be playing? Will Jack find the courage to step back up to the plate?
