This story is for the kids who toss the bat to choose captains and pick teams, playing in a neighborhood field or an empty lot. You’ll find no coaches, no concession stands, and sometimes just an old bat and ball. But once the first pitch is thrown, you’ll find the real heart and soul of America.
My son thought that the illustrations were incredible and looked lifelike. His favorite part was when the stranger donated baseball gear to the kids. It is truly a great story and my son would definitely read it again.
