By Terry Trueman
Scott is 18, a senior, and lives for his role as third baseman on the High School baseball team. That position is called the "Hot Corner" because anything can happen there and you have to be ready for it.
Things get crazy for Scott when he learns that his best friend Travis is gay. Scott freaks out, thinking that a batting cage accident where he got his friend's blood on his hands might mean he himself got infected with HIV. When Travis' parents kick him out of their house for being gay, Scott's father lets his friend stay with them.
Then the school newspaper publishes an article on "Coming Out." Now Scott's whole life seems to be the "Hot Corner!"
With the All-city high school baseball tournament approaching, Scott has 7 days to figure out how to handle it all.
