7 days at the hot corner is not really a baseball book. When third baseman Scott finds out that his best friend since childhood, Travis, is gay, he doesn't handle the news well. In fact he does everything that a friend shouldn't do and it takes him the rest of the book to get his feelings figured out and start acting like a real friend. This was a great story about a topic that doesn't get much attention. Fast, easy to read, and well written, it confronts almost every prejudice dealing with homosexuality that has ever been verbalized. Highly recommended.
