"Written with Ripken's obvious knowledge of the game, Conor's story rings true, with plenty of good baseball action. If Conor's not always in good spirits, the novel is, with likable characters, lively baseball action and the usual dreams of playing in the big leagues-in Conor's case, at Camden Yards. Ripken and Cowherd, like Conor and his Babe Ruth League Orioles, make a winning team. "―--Kirkus

Besides being in a batting slump during a Grand Slam Tournament, Corey Maduro experiences the mounting pressure from Katelyn Moss, teammate, who desperately wants his center-field position. It sounds like an opportunity to seize the moment while he's down.
But that's not all. Besides peer pressure and not playing good baseball, Corey's dad goes bonkers in the stands like a wild man. Along with other parents they engage in shouting matches during the game. And what is poor Corey, the main character in this story suppose to do? There were moments when he felt like crawling into a hole. But will that solve anything? A difficult question to answer.
Using his experience as a former major league baseball player, Cal Ripken, Jr. does an excellent job in delighting baseball fans with this down to earth grassroots action-packed, funny story. Marvin P. Ferguson, author of THE UNKNOWN BASEBALL STORY.
