Eleven-year-old cousins Liam McCarthy, a catcher, and Carter Jones, a pitcher, grew up playing baseball together and have become closer than brothers. Now, their team is on the verge of winning the greatest championship of all: the Little League Baseball World Series. To reach the title match, however, they must first beat their number-one rivals from Southern California. Little do they know that the game will prove to be just the first challenge they'll face on their road to the championships.

Professional reviews

"Liam and Carter are 11-year-old neighbors and cousins who play Little League ball as an inseparable pitcher-catcher duo. In this first of a series of baseball-packed adventures, the boys reach the highs of playing in a championship game and the lows of enduring a family move--and they handle each situation together. Narrator Nick Sullivan sounds like a baseball announcer with his firm and steady voice. He brings distinct characterizations to the many players and coaches--although he sounds a bit too mature when voicing young ball players. He's especially good at generating excitement by speeding up his pace and at using dramatic pauses to anticipate twists in the plot. A short history of Little League baseball completes the production. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
