The Big Field by Mike Lupica
Recommended for: Grades 5 and up

14 yrs old Hutch loves everything about baseball. He is a great player, too – a star shortstop. But when a new star, Daryl, comes along, Hutch must step aside and take the 2nd base position. Hutch’s father was once a great ballplayer, and Hutch longs to have that connection with his dad. But his father is removed, putting up a wall between him and his son. Hutch and his team make it all the way to the playoffs, and over the course of the postseason, Hutch learns about what it means to be a good teammate, son, and friend. Like other Mike Lupica books, The Big Field features lots of exciting play-by-play sports action, too.
