Connor knows he will be an All-Star when he is a Major League Baseball
player--if he can make it through sixth grade.
Life is much harder now that his problems
are so big:
First, Dad says make straight A's or NO
Second, he is switched from playing
shortstop to second base. Everybody knows the star player is
shortstop--uh-oh! Is Connor really a star baseball player?
Third, he is switched into a new
"enrichment" class with crazy worksheets and silly words--uh-oh! How can
he do the work if he can't even read the directions?
Last, his team is switched to a new
baseball field--uh-oh! What is that strange odor over where the workers
The bases are loaded with problems for
Connor. Can he live up to his dad's high standards? Would his hero
Jackie Robinson approve of the choices Connor makes?
How much easier life was when all Connor
had to do was PLAY BALL!
