When Trey’s treasured lucky charm—a piece of blue sea glass he found near his grandmother’s beach house—“helps” him make it onto the Ravens travel team with his friend Cole, he is overjoyed. This stroke of good fortune reinforces his superstitious behavior, and the rituals become more and more important to him. In spite of some teasing and even some sarcasm from his teammates, Trey persists—he never steps on the foul line, he obsessively taps the corners of home plate when he’s at bat, he always chooses the same lucky bat—and the list just keeps getting longer.
