This should be the best time of Scott's life: He's a star senior on the baseball team. His future in the big leagues is bright. He plays third base or the "hot corner," where anything can happen. Then he learns that anything can happen in life, too. An article about an anonymous gay student is published in the school paper. The next day, Scott's best friend Travis tells Scott that the article is about him. Scott's world is thrown off kilter by this revelation, and he's worried he won't be able to concentrate in the big tournament. Will Scott make good plays in his hot corner, or will a bad hop destroy his friendship with Travis and his future career?
