Michael is a pitching phenom with dreams of taking his team to the Little League World Series. Afraid of being separated in foster care, or worse, sent back to Cuba, Michael and his brother have been keeping their father’s death a secret from all but those closest to them. As the baseball season becomes more intense, a rival questions Michael’s age and insists that he show a birth certificate to prove he is not too old for little league. With no way to prove his age, no birth certificate, and no parent to stick up for him, Michael’s dream is on the line. Author: Mike Lupica
