Description


The Reds and the Cubs are battling for first place in the Rising Stars League, and the Reds need a victory in today's game to push ahead in the standings. Kyle, the Reds' center fielder, wants to win so much that he claims to have made a difficult catch, which he actually dropped.

The win gives Kyle and his team an unfair advantage in the championship series, and everyone considers him the hero of the game. But all of the praise and attention he receives is not enough to silence his conscience. Will he come clean and risk the ire of his family and his team?

The afterword provides the real story of Christy Mathewson, an MLB pitcher whose reputation for honesty actually had umpires asking him to make calls during games.
