User Summary: There's a major little league game today, and if all goes well you'll be accepted into the Babe Ruth League!
Demian's Thoughts: This is quite a change of pace from the previous book. While that adventure was fairly tightly plotted, this one is all over the place. The choices and consequences are almost all entirely random, and the book explores some pretty weird territory ranging from time travel to kidnap attempts. Some of these adventures might be entertaining to the book's target audience, but they're not too thrilling and don't really come together to form a satisfying whole. On an unrelated note, the book deserves an award for corporate name-dropping; Wheaties, Burger King and several other famous brands all get mentions during the course of the adventure.
