Baseball can save a boy's life...
Add to Wish List
Twelve-year-old Michael Arroyo lives in the shadows of
Yankee Stadium, home of his heroes, but a place that might
as well be on a different continent since he canâ€™t afford to
see the inside. He also lives in the shadows of his Bronx
neighborhood, hiding from the bill collectors and the
officials who would separate him from his seventeen-year-old
brother if they knew the two boys were living on their own.
Baseball is Michaelâ€™s only salvation, along with his dream
of playing in the Little League World Seriesâ€”until a rival
accuses Michael of being older than the league limit. With
no parents and a birth certificate that is stuck in his
native Cuba, the shadows in Michaelâ€™s life grow darker. But
that is when heroes emerge, and for Michael, heroes donâ€™t
come any bigger than the Yankees.
