Darcy Spillman wonders why they call kissing a girl "getting to first base." He knows everything about baseball and he thinks he likes Danalda Chase, a pretty girl in his class, but he knows nothing about dating. This has got to change. With help from his baseball-statistics-obsessed best friends; the new girl, Kamna; and former minor-leaguer Grandpa Spillman, Darcy looks for the connection between his favorite sport and his new love interest. With a kiss from Danalda Chase as the goal, he steps up to bat and swings for the fences.

This sweet and funny story is perfect for every romantically challenged preteen boy.
