Justin has always been a big fan of Mason Falls High School's baseball team, the Lions--even though they are the worst in their division. But this season, the Lions are playing surprisingly well under the new coach. Almost too well to believe. Justin wonders if the new coach has simply whipped the players into shape, or if something else is responsible for the team's drastic turnaround.

Booklist Review: "Last year's dismal baseball record for the Mason Falls Lions set the high-school's rock-bottom expectations for the team, despite its new coach and star transfer student. Yet something is different: the boys are actually hitting and winning. Justin can't play because of an old injury, but he and his friend Katie love watching the games. Still, they can't help wondering if the team is truly that much better or whether something fishy is going on. When they begin to suspect foul play, they set about searching for the truth. With the help of a friend on the team, they uncover evidence of illegal tactics and collusion, but can they bring honor back to their school and the game? This fast-paced sports story from the high-low Mason Falls Mysteries series will appeal to teen reluctant readers who might not stick with Mike Lupica's or Tim Green's longer books. The short chapters, dialogue-driven text, and high stakes make this a safe bet for those seeking a quick read that still has some heft.--J. B. Petty Copyright 2018 Booklist"
