I read a series of books when I was in Middle School, ~1991, that centeret around a young boy who was sent off to a boarding school, and the books detailed his adventures at the school.  The kid was very unhappy to be at the school and regularly attempted to escape.  I remember one scene where, upon having his batting skills noticed, he was placed into the school's baseball team.  On the first away game, he hit a home run, ran for first place, and kept running into the forest beyond the field. 

In general, he was characterized as a very bright and athletic kid, who was completely disinterested in the school and those activities, and was nonetheless caught up in adventure after adventure.  There was a female boarding school across the road, which led to a few situations as well. 

I know it's a very vague description, but I was hoping someone would remember the stories as well and be able to tell me the author or title.
