"What if you lived and breathed baseball? What if you were talented enough to play on a traveling baseball team, but couldn't afford the fees? What if you could predict every pitch that was headed towards a batter? All three of these apply to Jalen DeLuca.

Along with his friends Cat and Daniel, Jalen is so desperate to get the $990 traveling club fee for registration, he decides to steal baseballs from Yankee superstar James Yager to sell on eBay. He only needs a few balls and feels he is justified since Yager contributes to a charity that helps underprivileged kids play sports with his foundations. Only one problem: Yager catches him red-handed. Jalen tries his best to talk his way out of trouble. The aging superstar doesn't want to hear any of it...until Jalen tells him he can predict accurately each pitch that comes across the plate. He is a Baseball Genius.

Yager is, of course, skeptical, but eventually is willing to see his gift in action. And, you know what?...Jalen can actually do it! So, in exchange for not pressing charges, Jalen is expected to help Yager go 4-for-4 in the three games coming up with the White Sox. The odds? You guessed it! Astronomical!

There are plenty of hidden agendas and other people involved. Jalen is up against tough odds. Can he do it under pressure? There is some tense, baseball action in this book co-authored by Green and Jeter. You'll recognize lots of familiar baseball names. However, it comes to such an abrupt, hurried end that you'll be left waiting to hear more about certain characters. And, it'll help big time if you're a dedicated baseball fan. Lots of play-by-play commentary and baseball terms.

"This book was a great read and I loved it because I love baseball and it was a real page turner. It is funny and you want to know what happens next. I would recommend fourth graders through adults to read this book because some words are a little tough to understand and it was somewhat hard to comprehend. If you liked this book you would love to read the rest of the Derek Jeter and Tim Green books. It is about a young baseball player who can predict pitches. To make his little league baseball team he needs some help from his friend James Yager a Major League Baseball player. James hires him to help save his baseball career by predicting pitches. Will Jaylen help James save his career? Read this book to find out. " said.

" Authentic baseball action. Great for middle school students who love baseball. " said.

" I loved it so much it was one of the best books I have read " said.

" I couldn't get in to this. HOWEVER, because I could tell Tim tried hard and the theme would've been great, I will give it an extra star! " said.

" Great book for baseball fans even if the premise that someone can predict pitches is a bit preposterous. Engaging and fun with clear consequences to misdeeds. " said.

" Hard for me to recommend a book about cheating.Hopefully the second book will show that it is wrong.Surprised. " said.
