Once summer vacation arrives, Chad begins his new job as a batboy for the local Pine City Porcupines baseball team, and this book describes that experience. One of the players, Mike Stammer, seems to be jinxed and keeps making costly errors when he's in the field. That is, until Chad finds a baseball card from his collection that inspires Mike. In addition, there are all sorts of problems for Chad to confront--another batboy who doesn't even like baseball, a rabbit placed on the bench in an attempt to get rid of Mike's jinx, even his classmates in the stands who beg for balls. The author does a good job of capturing the players' personalities, and baseball fans will relish this easy-to-read title with four collectible baseball cards in the back.
