The 2nd book in this series is just as much fun as the first book, maybe even more so with the famous old-time baseball player from Louisville, Rube Waddell, making an appearance.

For example, among the 260 men who lost their lives in the sinking of the USS Maine in the Havana harbor, ten were members of their baseball team -- they had won the Navy's championship just the month before.

The sequel to the special and amazing series Barnstormers or Sluggers does not disappoint at all. It Includes to have enough sports and fantasy fun to be a sequel as good as Magic in the outfield also known as Sluggers book 1.
I think Sluggers book 2 Horsin Around is a great book and does not disappoint.
It is a very exciting book from start to finish. My favorite part was when they played the game.

I grew up in Lexington, Kentucky in the 1970’s. We had no artists of any kind in the family. We didn’t know any artists. I liked sports, especially baseball. My mother read to me a lot. But I have to admit, my favorite subject in school was gym class. I also liked to draw. My parents encouraged me to keep drawing.
