Yet, when the championship came around, well you will just have to read the book to find out. A few years later jimmy’s dad got remarried and after the reception Seth got caught by his mom driniking. They came back and got to play their freshman year of baseball together. While I am not sure which of these two works came out first, have u ever had Seth and Jimmy compared to the 2 main boys in that movie?

Both Seth and Jimmy are believable characters, they are the type of teenage boys hart would see living on your street. Jimmy was playing baseball with his Dad and he asked Seth to come play with them.

Their journey leads them playing for a state championship. Jimmy joins the baseball team for the last half of their freshman year. Deukef all have a great year and only lose one game. Seth made the decision not to hang out with those guys because he could get kicked off of the team. But will all of this is going on there is a lot of underage drinking going on.


The auther had great writting skills because of his awsome use of adjactives and verbs compared with amazing facts about the book. And i could realt to this book and the characters, I love baseball and so did Jimmy and Seth.

Jimmy saw him and asked if he wanted to pl When you were a little kid, did you ever dream about making it to the big leagues? Tragedy soon strikes when Jimmy crashes his camaro into a tree after a night of drinking and is pronounced dead at the hospital.

Another Review at MyShelf. This was a great book because it put each game into detail and used great words like ‘pounded’ and ‘crushed’ to make each hit and each catch interesting. Jimmy and Seth would go to there friends house and would drink beer.

I wanted to write you to thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing this book and somehow letting this book find me twice in my life at very different times and ironically at very similar times.


Soon, however, Seth and Jimmy are inseparable and baseball is the glue that holds their friendship together. This book was really good it kept me reading because it told me mistakes people make when they are not smart. It has great character development and the plot is easy to understand.

The conflict in this book is as the boys get older Jimmy starts to party all the time and at first Seth was champioon the same thing but Seth stopped because he got caught. This book has become my most prefferred book in the world after reading it.

Is built kinda of like Seth.
