Synopsis: Four junior high school friends find that their "war" with another clique of boys is costing their baseball team a championship season.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-6-- Strictly for baseball enthusiasts, this book centers around the Alden Junior High Panthers, who are more concerned about competing among themselves than with their opponents. This dissension between the team's two distinct cliques leads to nasty pranks and verbal and physical exchanges. As their losses mount and the rivalry intensifies, one of the players realizes that unless some sort of harmony is struck between the feuding groups, the season will be a total loss. A truce is finally reached and the players pull together and begin to become a team in the true sense of the word. Hallowell obviously knows baseball; the story is full of game description, strategy, and technique. Other than the coach, there are no adult characters of any substance and females are virtually nonexistent. To Hallowell's credit, a predictable "fairy tale" ending does not occur. In fact, the team loses their last game and finishes the season with a losing record. To his discredit, a particularly painful stereotype appears early in the book: "Alden was a lot like every junior high. It had seventh and eighth grades, librarians with thick glasses . . ." Although the characters are of junior-high age, this is a suitable sports story for upper elementary grades. --Tom S. Hurlburt, formerly at Minneapolis Public Library
