Man Out at First (Peach Street Mudders Series) by Matt Christopher, Ellen Beier

After first baseman Turtleneck Jones takes a fast-moving throw from his team's shortstop right in the chest, he starts shying away from the ball and missing easy plays because he's afraid of being hit again. Coach Parker has no choice but to replace Turtleneck with the Mudders' substitute player. Will Turtleneck be able to find his lost confidence -- or will he have to be content with a permanent place on the bench?

About the Author

Matt Christopher (1917-1997) was an American writer of children's books. He wrote more than 400 novels and short stories, mainly featuring sports. After his death, his family has overseen the production of ghost written books under his name. Born in Bath, Pennsylvania, Christopher was a gifted athlete as a child, which influenced his primary topic of writing. In addition to sports books, he also enjoyed writing detective fiction; his first published novel before the successful The Lucky Baseball Bat was Look for the Body, a murder mystery written for adults.
