One of Casey’s favorite things is helping out his dad and grandpa with their Umpire Training Camp. One thing Casey is NOT interested in doing is talking to Mrs. Bob the Baker (a.k.a. Mom). She broke the family, married Bob (who bakes for a living), and moved out. He hasn’t lived with her for years, and hasn’t spoken to her for months. What’s the point? There are more interesting things going on in his life: he might be the first 6th grader to get something published in the school paper, his best friend, Zeke, is entering a film about their Umpire Camp in a national contest, a famous x-baseball player may be attending their Umpire Camp in disguise, and he and Zeke get to be in charge of the best day of camp this year! Life is good; even Mrs. Bob the Baker can’t ruin this.

If you like books about baseball and a lot more too, you might also enjoy: Heat, by Mike Lupica, One Handed Catch, by Mary Jane Auch, Under the Blood Red Sun, by Graham Sallisbury, or The Other Boy, by M.G. Hennessey.
