Yet more evidence for my obsession with baseball AUs. This is the first one I read - in fact, one of the first fics I read (and followed) in the TW fandom at all. Derek is a closeted college ball player who plays a summer season with the Mankato Moon Dogs and meets his host family’s friend, Stiles. I love the feeling i get from this fic - I know that’s a super vague thing to say but some fics, like this one, do such a good job at creating atmosphere that I associate them with an overall feeling. Sweet, and with the right combination of angst and fluff.
