Overview

Sammy's softball team is in contention for the Junior Slugger's Cup, and all she wants to do is hunker down behind home plate and catch strikes. But Heather Acosta brings new meaning to the term "foul ball" as she schemes to get Sammy kicked off the team. And Sammy is thrown a wild pitch by a frantic girl in the mall. She begs Sammy to watch something for her and then dashes off before Sammy realizes that the bag she's left holding contains a baby! Now there are some pitches that you shouldn't even try to catch, but Sammy's a take-it-in-the-chest-protector kind of player. So when the girl doesn't return for her baby, Sammy decides to go find her. And her search leads her into situations that are just not covered in a softball playbook.

One of the better books I've "read" lately. Within 20 seconds, you're dropped into the action and with 30 seconds, it grabs you by the collar and doesn't let go until the end. The end doesn't wrap everything up in a bow, but leaves you with the hope that everything will work out. Very satisfying ending. The whole thing is. The description leads you to believe that everything is a softball metaphor and, while important to much of the story, there are plenty of "unsoftball paralled problems." The bag Sammy gets at the mall is the main thread.
