Connor Wells thought he was in for a fun summer of playing video games at home in Burlington, Ontario. But something has happened to his mother. He doesnt know what it is, but its bad enough that shes sent him off to stay with some distant relatives in Winnipeg.
To make matters worse, Connors relatives are baseball freaks not just fans, but full-blown baseball nuts. The trouble is, Connor cant play at all. The summer would be a write-off for him, but one day he discovers he has a hidden talent. Connor can hit. He can really hit.

"The baseball practice and action is realistically depicted."

- John Peters, Booklist
