Rounding Third


Rob Wardell is a seventeen-year old who feels like he doesn’t quite fit in anywhere–not at home, not at school and not on the baseball field. The small, shy boy stays on the high school baseball team only to please his father since he knows he will never get to play. He’s living his life alone until he finds himself drawn into a friendship with the team’s new star pitcher, Josh Schlagel. The two boys hit it off instantly; maybe it’s because Josh isn’t exactly welcomed by the team either. But as Rob and Josh grow closer and start spending more time together away from the field, Rob realizes this his friend is hiding something. The bruises on Josh’s body and his reluctance to let Rob know about certain parts of his life have Rob suspicious. When Josh’s secrets are finally revealed and become life threatening, Rob and his family must step up to the plate.

Praise for Rounding Third

This is another wonderful book and I enjoyed it. It’s a coming-of-age story that’s well-written and pulls the reader along the same path as the main character. Interesting and entertaining. I loved it and would highly recommend it. – Trekermt "Walter Meyer has written a moving and powerful story of intense love between two young jocks.   Rounding Third is a page turner and I couldn't put it down once I started reading.  You find  yourself deeply caring for the fate of the characters and moved by their struggle to find themselves and each other.  A unique, well written and wonderful novel." - David Mixner, author of  “Stranger Among Friends” I did enjoy your book very much. The plays were real and exciting and I liked the characters. It’s a good read. - Luke Terpstra “Rounding Third is the amazing tale of Rob and Josh, two boys in love.  I found myself rooting for these young men, wishing that I could enter the book and save them.  Their journey is filled with hope, sorrow, joy--first love was never tackled like this."   – Noël Alumit, Lambda Literary Awarding winning author of "Letters to Montgomery Clift" I was actually cursing you as I read it, because I really couldn't put it down! I read it in 24 hours. Great job.   - Lynne Margolis, Freelance writer
