The main character is Tom Gallagher. He plays on a baseball team that his dad coaches. He loves

great game. Dante delGato is a legendary baseball player that agrees to be Toms team’s coach.
He is one of the best coaches. Tom’s dad was the teams head coach until Dante del Gato.
His mom is normal.
The first problem is that Doc is going to sell a huge amount of land and tear
down a legendary baseball field unless Tom and his baseball team beat the
best baseball team. They don’t have a good team and they need a way better
trainer and coach. Can they find one?
The second problem is when Cruz de la Cruz was not at the game to play
baseball and nobody could find him. He was the top hitter on the team.
The third was when Maria the pitcher got a broken ankle and there were no
pinch pitchers. They only have 9 players, so if they lose a player they forfeit
and lose the game.
The forth problem is when Doc dies before the game ends. The stadium
will have to be to be torn down even though……………so Tom has to stop it!
People down in Dillontown don’t agree on much. Not the skateboard laws. Not the
billboard laws. The economy. The ecology. There’s days when they don’t even agree
on which way the wind is blowing. But they agree on this. From old timers in there
overalls on Maine Street, to the seventy-seven keyboard clicking kids down at Scrub Oak
Community School, they’ll each and all tell you. If there wasn’t a kid named Cruz de la
Cruz, somebody would’ve come along and invented him.
And no matter how weird and wild and tall the tale, no one, not even Blackjack Buck himself could’ve cooked up a mind-whacking brain-snapper as wild and woolbacious as what really happened.
Because Cruz de la Cruz, that cyber-vato desperado, not only saved el civismo, the very spirit
of this town, he saved the holy game of Baseball as we know it.
