Cody Parker is the new kid in school. Hes overweight, scared and hates his new life in Dullsville, Maryland, aka Baltimore, where hes a target?okay, a big target?for brutal teasing. But he loves baseball. And despite his size, he plays third base like a dream. Too bad hes competing for the starting job on the Orioles of the Dulaney Babe Ruth League against budding hoodlum Dante Rizzo, who vows to squeeze Codys head like a grape if he beats him out. Life gets even more complicated when Codys school, York Middle, is beset by a rash of mysterious thefts, a crime wave that threatens to sideline Cody?and ruin a golden season for the Orioles. Will Cody ever succeed in getting people to see him for who he really is?
