The Big Field by Mike Lupica

The Big FieldKeith Hutchinson had always played shortstop, just like his Dad. This year that has changed. The team has a new player who is even better than Hutch and he is playing shortstop. Hutch is playing second base. Their team makes it to the finals and Hutch has gotten some press for his performance but not all is going smoothly. The shortstop has an irritating attitude, Hutch’s dad is as reserved and distant as always and Hutch misses playing the shortstop spot. Thanks goodness, Hutch has a supportive and understanding mother and the best friend ever, Cody, who also plays on the team. This is an interesting book and will speak to all the kids who dream of having a professional sports career. Hutch has hopes for one but his Dad is dead set against it because his professional career died and it broke his heart. The book doesn’t give any answers but explores these issues and the last baseball game is really exciting!
