When Glen makes pitcher for the East York Eagles, he’s determined to be the best player on the little league team. The trouble is, the rest of his teammates want to play too, and they never seem good enough for Glen’s liking.
“There is no ‘I’ in ‘team,’” Glen’s mother reminds him, but eventually his temper and desire to win threaten the Eagles’ chances — not to mention Glen’s own future at the plate.
Through fast-paced action on the field, Hit and Run keeps readers on the edge of the bench as Glen comes up swinging for the little league championships.
