Overview

Glen aims to be the starting pitcher and best player on the East York Eagles baseball team. He works hard to achieve this—maybe too hard. None of his teammates seem to measure up to Glen's impossibly high standards. His mother reminds him "there's no 'I' in 'team,'" but his bad temper and narrow focus on winning threaten the Eagles' chances and his own future with the team. To avoid disaster, Glen is forced to face the problems that drive him, both on the diamond and off. Hit and Run is the story of a driven young athlete whose ambition finally teaches him the meaning of sportsmanship.

Resource Links
"...an interesting book about the life of an average ten year old child. Glen finds out that team work pays off and that considering the feelings of others is an important lesson on life if one is to be accepted by family and friends."
Canadian Book Review Annual
"Recommended for young baseball fans and for children facing the same family-related issues as Glen."
