Overview

Springtime in Rambletown means one thing—another season of Rounders baseball!

Old Man Winter has delivered more snow than the post office has delivered mail! The only way the Rounders are getting to first base is with a snow shovel. As the team tries to "warm up" for the upcoming season, they welcome a new center fielder: Orlando Ramirez. He's fast as a cheetah and catches everything.

Only one problem: those great catches end with him smashing into the outfield wall like a crash-test dummy. With the season opener against the hated Haymakers approaching, Orlando and the Rounders will need a miracle—or a really big shovel—to put the brakes on Orlando's collision course with the wall and this never-ending cold spell.

Meet the Author

Kevin Markey always feels a thrill when baseball spring training opens in Florida in February. Where he lives, snow usually covers the ground at that time of year. The opening of the major league camps is like the annual return of robins—it means spring is just around the corner. M/p>

Kevin is the author of Slumpbuster, Wall Ball, and Wing Ding—the hilarious first, second, and third books in his Super Sluggers series of baseball adventures—and several books of nonfiction. He lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, with his wife and two children, and a lovable yellow-haired dog named Happy. He bats left, throws left, and types with both hands.
