Baseball season is under way, and Coach Skelly just quit! Worst of all, Scott and his teammates can't find anyone else to coach the team. It looks as if the Tigers' season might be over before it really begins.

But then the Tigers have a big idea: what if one of them becomes the coach? After all, some of the biggest names in baseball history were player-coaches. Why not a kid coach?
