Jinx Glove


by Matt Christopher

Chip really wanted a new glove.  The one he owned had once belonged to his father, and it was okay, but Chip couldn’t get the idea of a new one out of his head.  Using money he has saved, Chip finally does go out and buy the glove he’s longed for.  Then he throws the old one in the lake.

But something goes wrong.  Chip becomes a rotten fielder whenever he wears his new glove.  What can he do?  His old glove is gone, and his new one seems jinxed.  Find out how Chip solves the problem in this fast-action sports story.
