From acclaimed author of the Home Team series Mike Lupica comes a brand-new novel about the heart and soul of baseball.
On or off the field, Matt and Ben couldnât be more different. Ben Roberson is an all-or-nothing player: Heâs big, heâs bold, and heâs brash. Benâs swing can hit a ball right out of the park - but thatâs if he can get a hit at all.Â
Matt Baker is small and shy, and his stutter has him avoiding the spotlight - even if heâs the best all-around player on the team. But while Matt knows heâs got the chops, a part of him has always envied âBig Benâ and his attention-grabbing charm.Â
So itâs a total shock when Ben asks Matt to help him work on his swing because Ben canât put the ball into play, and his showboating comes at the expense of the team. And even though Mattâs trying to help, Ben doesnât seem to take him seriously, especially when it means toning things down.
The end of the season is fast approaching - is there enough time for Ben to realize bigger isnât always better? For Matt to understand that sometimes, being the bigger person means standing up for yourself?
Or will they have to accept defeat?

So when his English teacher challenges the class to write a biography of the person they most admire, Lucas canât think of anyone heâd rather write about.Â Except...Gramps is being cagey.

And if there is, will Lucas be prepared to face the truth about the man he thought he knew?Â With basketball championships fast approaching, time is running out for Lucas to decide.
