This second book in the Erskine college sports series centers around baseball at Erskine College. Our protagonist, 17-year-old Jack Weatherby has an unfortunate beginning at the school. He is cruelly branded a coward for hesitating to save a younger boy from drowning (the boy was then saved by another), and we see his struggle to overcome this blow to his reputation. How he does this, proves that, in fact, he is no coward, and as the college nine's second-baseman, makes a rare game-saving play, make for an exciting, heart-warming story, in typical Barbour style.
