Connor might need a pinch runner, pinch catcher, and pinch thrower, but can he ever hit a baseball out of the park! So when Connor ends up staying with his baseball-loving relatives in Winnipeg for the summer, he allows his cousin to talk him into trying out for the baseball team. Connor isn't surprised when he doesn't make it, but he is disappointed. It's going to take some powerful coaching and more than a little help from his friends to get Connor on the team.
