The Hit-Away Kid by Matt Christopher is a story about baseball and tell telling the truth. Barry, the main character, is a good baseball player who stretches the rules a bit. He learns that he is not perfect at everything and this makes him feel better about playing baseball. We recommend this book a lot.
Barry McGee is an outfielder for the Peach Street Mudders and a superb player. He takes his baseball very seriously, willing to do almost anything to win. The story opens with him chasing down a fly ball, dropping it out of sight of the umpire and then raising it as if he caught it. His sister and a few of the people in the bleachers know what happened, but in the interests of victor, Barry says nothing in order to preserve the out.
This leads to a problem when Alec finds a small figurine that Barry's sister had dropped and refuses to give it back.

The Hit-Away Kid is about a boy named Barry McGee who plays for the Peach Street Mudders baseball team. Barry plays left field and has to run after a fly ball that he drops but no one sees and he pretends he caught it so they win the game. Barry's sister and some other people know that Barry did not really catch the ball. A boy from the other team named Alec finds a toy that belongs to Barry's brother and does not want to give it back. He tells Barry that he has to hit two homeruns in the next game to get it back. If Barry strikes out twice, Alec gets to keep the toy. Barry hits one homerun and strikes out one time but when he hits a triple and misses second base he feels bad and lets the other team tag him out. Even though Barry did not hit the two homeruns, Alec gives the toy back because Barry told the truth about missing second base. It was not about who won the game but about Barry telling the truth.
