Hit and Run
by Dawn Hunter and Karen Hunter
Glen aims to be the starting pitcher and best player on the East York Eagles baseball team. He works hard achieve this--maybe too hard.
None of his teammates seem to measure up to Glen's impossibly high standards. His mother reminds him "there's no 'I' in 'team'," but his bad temper and narrow focus on winning threaten the Eagles' chances and his own future with the team. To avoid disaster, Glen is forced to face the problems that drive him, both on the diamond and off.
Hit and Run is the story of a driven young athlete whose ambition finally teaches him the meaning of sportsmanship.
