Mike's junior year is going well. He's center fielder for the Rangers, his high school baseball team, and he has a cute girlfriend, Lori. Then two new people turn his year upside down: Oscar, who hails from the Dominican Republic, hits like a pro, and may take Mike's position; and Kat, a stunning, feisty track runner who looks even better when his and Lori's relationship becomes miserable. Can Mike up his game, on and off the field, or will he be stuck with second-best?
