KIRKUS REVIEW

Sam Sloat, a nineteen-year-old fast pitcher, is a prodigy with his incredible speedball. His first season with a major team brings him the acclaim his insecurity demands, but at the cost of his specialty, for he has abused his arm and must rely on more conventional tactics. How Sam matures, gains the respect of his team members and learns to play a solid game make up the plot of this baseball packed novel which will appeal to the fans.
