Baseball is Brian's life. Not just playing the game, but watching it, analyzing it, and knowing it down to history and stats. He learns from his dad, an ex-major league pitcher who now works as a coach for a team in Japan. After his father leaves Brian and his mom, baseball is the only thing the two have in common. This summer, Brian lands a spot on a travel team and also his dream job as a batboy at Comerica Park for the Detroit Tigers. Icing on the cake comes when Hank Bishop, his all-time favorite player, rejoins the Tigers after serving a suspension for a steroid scandal. Despite Brian's best efforts though, heroes aren't always what they seem. Join Brian as he chronicles his baseball summer in The Batboy by Mike Lupica.
