Publisher Description:
For Hutch, shortstop has always been home. Itas where his father once played professionally, before injuries relegated him to watching games on TV instead of playing them. And itas where Hutch himself has always played and starred. Until now. The arrival of Darryl aD-Willa Williams, the top shortstop prospect from Florida since A-Rod, means Hutch is displaced, in more ways than one. Second base feels like second fiddle, and when he sees his father giving fielding tips to D-Willathe same father who canat be bothered to show up to watch his son playaHutch feels betrayed. With the summer league championship on the line, just how far is Hutch willing to bend to be a good teammate?

Mike Lupica returns to the big field for the first time since his #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Heat" and delivers a feel-good home run, showing how love of the game is a language fathers and sons speak from the heart.
