Ty, shortstop for an independent pro baseball team the Arsenals, has managed to keep his personal life separate from an unforgiving industry, but the arrival of a new third baseman threatens to challenge the delicate balance he's held for so long. On the outside, Ty has a spunky "girlfriend" who knows the truth and won't let him get hurt, but it's never been enough. Just one look at Jae, and well, when the ump calls "ball two," baseball is the farthest thing from Ty's mind!
Jae Wise joins the team to replace an injured player, so his time with the Arsenals is only temporary, but he can't think straight when it comes to Ty. When they become roomies on the road, then housemates during a stretch of home games, the attraction the two young athletes feel toward one another cannot be denied.
Jae and Ty must decide what they fear more—being caught, or losing what just might be the best relationship either man has ever had.
