Baseball Genius 3

Grand Slam

For Ages: 8 - 12
Jalen DeLuca applies his baseball genius to his own playing in this follow-up to Tim Green and Derek Jeter’s New York Times bestselling novel Baseball Genius.

Jalen DeLuca loves baseball. He’s playing for his summer travel team and trying to win a regular spot in the rotation. But Jalen’s got more than talent on the field. He’s a baseball genius. He can analyze and predict almost exactly what a pitcher is going to do with his next pitch. He can’t quite explain how he knows, he just knows.

His unique ability helped him save the career of Yankees’s star baseman, James “JY” Yager, but with JY sidelined with an injury, Jalen’s focusing on his own on-field efforts. However, the media is still interested in the “Calamari Kid,” and Jalen begins to get a little full of himself. Now Daniel and Cat are starting to feel left out and kind of angry. Maybe all this baseball genius stuff isn’t as great as it’s cracked up to be.

Will Jalen figure out how to use his baseball genius both on and off the field? And can he find a way to hit a grand slam that will make everyone happy?
