The setting of "The Batboy" is Detroit, Michigan. Where a lot of the story occurs is at Comerica park, this is where the Detroit Tigers play baseball. Part of the story occurs at Brian's house as well. At Comerica, they set the story in the players lounge, on the field, and in equipment room number 3. With out this setting there would be no story. Brian is the babtboy at this park, without the park there would be no batboy. The major conflict is Brian getting to know Hank Bishop, a player for the Tigers. If there was no Comerica park, nor Detroit, then there would be no conflict between Hank and Brian.
