In addition to facing the reality that his older brother's cancer treatments may not go as successfully as he would wish, Matt Bainter's day-to-day life is also in turmoil after moving to a new town, joining the school's horrible baseball team, and ending up in a major slump of his own.

Where was he? Tiffany and the others climbed in right behind her, and Diana was ready to launch the boat, which was filed primarily with crew members who’d been the last to evacuate via this station. Wait, Jenner said desperately as Diana started to lower the lifeboat. There’s one more coming.

Zinnen does not prettify Tom's desperate straits or his family's reaction when he sneaks out of the hospital to marry his girlfriend. Nor does she gloss over Matt's emotional struggles with a new school, a new team, and the insistent drumbeat of Tom's deterioration. A note of hope, and sunlight, at the end will satisfy readers, who should be sure to keep the hankies handy. Thirteen-year-old Matt, from a large, noisy, loving family, faces the cancer of his beloved 19-year-old brother Tom.

Maybe it's enough to be standing up, holding at third, knowing that home is just around the bend. Thirteen-year-old Matt Bainter is a crack centerfielder and the middle child in a large family. If he does everything right, he bargains, his older brother Tom will survive bone cancer. While Tom undergoes treatment, Matt has to cope with the sacrifices that come with living in a new town and playing on a different?and far inferior?baseball team.

In addition to facing the reality that his older brother's cancer treatments may not go as successfully as he would wish, Matt Bainter's day-to-day life is also in turmoil after moving to a new town, joining the school's horrible baseball team, and ending up in a major slump of his own.

Excellent book! Well written!

This is the best book about baseball I have ever read. It puts you in the center of a boy's mind at the very heart of the game as he struggles to work his way through a mediocre season on a mediocre team. But it is so much more than that -- It is amazing how Linda Zinnen puts you in Matt's head as he plays through an up and down season while fearing for his brother Tom's life who is hospitalized by cancer.
Matt's season runs in parallel to Tom's fight against his own mortality. Matt has to balance the sacrifices he is making by leaving a championship team for a perenniel also-ran to be near his brother, against his own frailties and fears that Tom may never come out alive again.
