        Play ball by Matt Christopher. The book is realistic fiction and adventure. Carter and Liam have been playing baseball since they were little. Then Liam moved to California. When Liam moved to California. Ash Labrie moved into Liam’s old house. And took over his position as catcher. My favorite part of the book is when Ash followed Carter to his hideout and Carter had to lie about were he was going so Ash did not follow him. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes baseball.
