After a serious career-ending injury of one of their pitchers, the Roadrunners baseball team are giving up their aluminum bats for wood ones in an upcoming wood-only tournament. Problem is, Sammy Perez had achieved status as a home run power slugger with big-league potential thanks to aluminum. The wood bat doesn't seem to allow him the serious power-hitting the major league scouts are looking for. His father is encouraging him to look into performance-enhancing drugs which leaves Sammy at a crossroads: the question being: does the end really justify the means?

While this book delves into that ethics quandry mentioned above, it is a quick and easy read that will appeal to baseball fans and others (notably middle-school guys) who may fall into the proverbial "reluctant reader" category.
