Chad s got the summertime blues: his parents want him to be home by midnight (no extra innings) and eat healthier (no corn dogs). His friend, Abby, has bobblehead issues. And then there s pinch hitter Sammy Solaris. But Sammy has problems of his own. He has a big swing but is too slow. If he can t speed up his running and stealing, he ll be off the team. There s got to be something Chad can do to save the day . . . with a little help from Dylan, a baseball card, and that porcupine!
