T.J. always wanted to be the pitcher for his team, but he was all ready playing
second base. In the book, T.J. asked his coach if he could try out for pitcher after
practice. The coach gave him a chance. T.J. showed the coach what he had but
it was not enough to strike anybody out. T.J. had to think up another plan, which
leads to an exciting ending to the book. The book takes place in the year 1996 in
This book is really good because it was about something I really enjoy, baseball. It
was so good that I was able to finish the book in a couple of hours. I would
recommend this book to anybody who enjoys baseball or any other sport. The
lesson in this story was to never give up and to try harder.
