The Tigers are in trouble.
Baseball season is underway, and Coach Skelly has just quit. When Scott and his teammates can't find an adult to coach the team, it looks as if the Tigers' season might be over before it really begins.
But then the players have an idea: what if one of them became coach? They learn about leadership and discover unique and unrecognized talents among their own friends. Woven into the story are real-life tales of player-managers in Major League Baseball.
