So far I would say the most important event would be Nick getting brought up to the varsity catching position. Nick is only a 7th grader, and under the coaches rules, he is not allowed to play up. The original catcher is out on injury and the coach has heard that Nick is a stud. This is a real turning point for Nick. Nick is put on the spot since the coach has bragged him up. This is also important for Nick and showing what he has, and now the season depends on him. This has affected his friendship with his jv teamates. Also, his mood is greatly affected because he has done terrible so he is crabby at everyone. The plot has changed because its a totally different atmosphere from the JV team, moving to the Varsity.
