More than anything, T. J. wants to be a pitcher. But he's smaller than his teammates, and his pitches just don't pack the power they need to strike out the batters.

So when T. J. learns about one of baseball's early heroes, Pittsburgh Pirate Rip Sewell, he decides to try Sewell's secret weapon. Will his teammates give T. J. the chance to prove that he can be a pitcher? And will T. J.'s secret pitch help lead his team to victory?

Author Fred Bowen offers another exciting story filled with on-the-field action and important themes of confidence and problem solving. An afterword provides the real story of Rip Sewell and his baseball career.
