KIRKUS REVIEW

Standard Christopher fare, with a minor mystery, a little misdirection, a happy wrap-up, and plenty of baseball action. T.V. Adams, third-baseman for the Peach Street Mudders, is proud of his ability to tell what batters are about to do; but hecklers, teammates who don't like being ordered around, and especially a series of threatening anonymous phone calls leave him with troubled dreams and persuade him to keep his predictions to himself. But after a miserable loss to a rival team, as well as reassuring, confidence-building talks from his father and a doctor, he changes his mind--which leads to a thrilling, last-minute victory for the Mudders; the unmasking of the (repentant) caller; and some new friends. Easy reading, easy lesson.
