But Ben finds his confidence shaken when he gets hit by a pitch in the first game and by the increasingly erratic behavior, both on and off the field, of his teammate, Justin. When Ben discovers that Justin's parents are getting a divorce and Justin is thinking about quitting the team, he steps in to help his struggling teammate, while Justin helps Ben deal with his issues at bat. Ages 9 to 11.
