Power Hitter

by Christine A. Forsyth

Connor Wells thought he was in for a fun summer of playing video games, until he goes to stay with his baseball crazy-cousins.

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 isnt surprised when he doesnt make it, but he is disappointed. Its going to take some powerful coaching and more than a little help from his friends to get Connor on the team.
