  About The Book

Carter Jones, Ash LaBrie, and their Forest Park All-Star teammates move on to Sectionals competition. Carter leads the charge with a devastating pitch that leaves batters blinking in confusion. Forest Park looks unstoppable-until a long-held grudge threatens to break apart the team and end their post-season journey.

Catcher Liam McGrath, Carter's cousin, knows all about grudges. But if he's going to succeed on his California All-Star team, he has to put aside his and work together with a rival-turned-teammate.

This is the third book in a five-book series that follows Liam and Carter as they work their way to the Little League® World Series. The final book in the series will coincide with the Little League® 75th Anniversary in 2014.
