Michael Arroyo is a cuban 12 year old boy that has a dream of playing in the little league world series. Both his parents die and he and his 17 year old brother lie about their deaths so they dont get sent back to cuba. Michael needs his birth certificate to play in the championship game. He meets the daughter of El Grande and they help Michael get his birth certificate and he gets to play the championship game in yankee stadium.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves baseball. It is also cool become Michael gets his wish to play in the championship game in yankee stadium. I played baseball for five years and that is why i chose this book.
