Too Hot To Handle

by Matt Christopher

Coming from a family of great baseball players isn’t easy…

Baseball runs in David Kroft’s family. His father was a good player in his day, his uncles play on professional teams, and David’s older brother, Don, is the best shortstop in the history of Penwood High School. David loves baseball as much as the rest of his family, but he isn’t quite as fast on his feet, and he thinks he makes too many errors. When Don hurts his leg in an accident and has to sit out the rest of the season, the pressure is on David to play better than ever. Will he be able to live up to the Kroft name?
