This is book number 13 in the Fred Bowen Sports Story Series series.


For Jake, there is only one thing he loves more than playing shortstop for his team, and that's winning.

So when newcomer Adam joins the team, Jake is excited to see that this guy can do it all—pitch, hit, field! But as their team racks up win after win, Adam's talents dominate every game and Jake can't help but wonder: Do he or the other players even matter? Or will he learn that even the best players must rely on their teammates?

This action-packed story of teamwork and friendship was inspired by Babe Ruth and the 1927 Yankees, the group that many have called "The Greatest Team of All Time."
