Fourteen-year-old Cody Martin is up to bat, and the pitcher is none other than "Madman" Madison, master of the 70-mile-per-hour blazer. It's been a rough season with more losses than wins, and the game is a squeaker when Cody's win-crazy coach insists he "take one for the team." Cody's already gone the extra inning for his teammates, but what more will he be willing to sacrifice-especially considering what happened exactly one year ago? In the end Cody learns that while some sacrifices result in pain, others lead to healing.
