Product Description

It was the Kind of Game from Which Legends are Born.... Tom Gallagher is in a tight spot. The Dillontown baseball field is about to be torn down by developers, and he has to save it. After all, Dillontown is a baseball town of legends. It's where the great Dante Del Gato became the best hitter baseball has ever known. Now the fate of the entire town rests on the outcome of one baseball game, winner take all. If Tom's team loses, they lose their field too. But how can they possibly win? Just when everything seems hopeless, a mysterious boy named Cruz de la Cruz rides into town and claims to know the secret of hitting. Not to mention the secrets of Dante Del Gato. Since he walked away from the game years ago, Del Gato hasn't spoken a word to anyone. But that's not going to stop Cruz de la Cruz from helping Tom ask Del Gato to coach the Dillontown team. It's a crazy idea, but it just might be Tom's only hope for saving his hometown.
