Life is easy and perfect until high school baseball star, Carl Carter, makes one massive mistake. This is a coming-of-age comic about choosing to live for yourself or to satisfy other people's perceptions. You'll quickly be engaged in this thought-provoking look at student life.

I like baseball, but the content limits its audience. The art is okay, but the story was lackluster.
