Tyler's temper is out of control. If he isn't careful, he'll blow his chances of making the All-Star team and being noticed by a scout. But Tyler's coach, a Vietnam War veteran, has seen anger destroy enough people. He knows that if Tyler is ever going to fulfill his dreams, he'll have to learn to fight his battles with his glove, his bat, and his love for the game. Not with his fists. But it all comes down to Tyler. Does he care enough about his future to work through the past?

"A grand slam." (The ALAN Review)

"An ambitious mark that predents a compelling, multilayered story." (School Library Journal)

About the author (2002)

While John H. Ritter is well known for his imaginative baseball novels for young readers, "Under the Baseball Moon "expresses his other love: music. John's first novel, "Choosing Up Sides," won the 1999 IRA Children's Book Award and was named an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. His subsequent novels "Over the Wall "and "The Boy Who Saved Baseball" went on to secure John's place as the preeminent writer of baseball fiction for young people. A full-time writer of German, Irish, and American Indian descent, he lives in San Diego with his wife.
