Adopted sick boy coaches baseball. Jeremiah is a wholesome, go getter and has a natural buoyancy for life. He is limited by his weak beart but doesn't let that get him down and decides to coach baseball for the school in the new city they move to. The first 100 pages drag on, but then there is scandal of coach perphas giving kids PEDs. So then people start to dislike the fact of them playing baseball. It seems a bit strange that middle school would have this problem, seems more like a college maybe high school issue. The problems with steroid issue is glossed over. They also use an autistic kid for help with the stats, but he seems more like a prop than an actual character. The main character seemed very plastic and lacked depth. I love Joan Bauer as an author, but this one didn't click for me.
