Eddie Ventura is the first baseman for the Hudson City Hornets seventh grade baseball team. The team is off to a rough start, but finally begins to win some games. Not exactly thanks to Eddie. He’s a good enough player, but he’s a better writer, and soon hes recruited by the sports editor of the school newspaper to write about the team’s games. Thing is, he’s more of a storyteller than a truth teller, and before long the rest of the team isn’t sure that they like what Eddie is writing about them!
