Summary

Summary

When the Grizzlies’ shortstop is sidelined two days before the playoffs, catcher Manny Griffin and second baseman Stu Fletcher decide to help his replacement, Sean, become a better player. During practice, Sean unleashes a wild throw that hits Stu! Stu is dazed, but insists that he’s fine and the team needs him. But Manny notices Stu is acting a little funny and he wonders if his friend is injured. Should he tell someone and pull Stu from playing second at the playoffs … or keep silent and hope that he’s not putting his friend in danger?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Joshua Swanson narrates…giving each character a distinctive voice. Especially convincing is the coach who, realizing he ignored important signs when Stu began to act out of character, gets a second chance to earn his players’ respect. With so much concern for the lasting effects of concussions, this is a good choice for elementary school libraries.” School Library Journal
