Readers who will like this: Baseball fans will love this book. Really any sports fan will be able to appreciate this book.
Rating/Response: 7/10. Pretty unrealistic. Good story, and cool details about baseball in the 1930’s, but unrealistic.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: What can you tell me about Babe Ruth?
