It's the biggest game of the season, and twenty-three boys are ready to play. They're checking each other out, plotting their strategies, and psyching themselves up. But one kid isn't on the field. Sam Reiser, the announcer, is sitting it out this season. He can't play, but he's not about to miss a game. And watching over it all is exciting-the acrobatic catches, the incredible hits, the devastating errors-it's just not the same. Sam's friend Mike knows how he feels. Mike's out in right field, wishing Sam could join him. Because this isn't just a big game. It's the championship-the biggest game of their lives.
