Satch&Me by Dan Gutman was a great book. This book was about a kid named Joe Stoshack and an older friend, Flip Vallentinie who go back to the past. They were able to do that with baseball cards. Joe has a special gift to go to the past with baseball cards. When they go back to the past, they try to click or see how fast Satchel Paige threw. After they arrived in the past they go through a bunch of fun, mysterious, and exciting vents. Read this book to find out more.

For those who enjoy reading the Magic Tree House or Time Warp Trio series, this book (part of the Baseball Card Adventure series), should be a great fit. Joey Stoshack has a secret power - he can travel through time with baseball cards. When he touches certain cards, he disappears from the present and reappears in the past:

"If I'm holding a 1919 baseball card, it will take me to the year 1919. If I'm holding a 1932 card, I'll show up in 1932. It's just about the coolest thing in the world. But a

Satch and Me

Satch and Me is another one of the baseball card adventures written by Dan Gutman. The main character is Joe Stoshack, who can travel through time with a baseball card. Joe and his friend Flip try to find the fastest pitcher in MLB history and see how fast they can pitch, which ends up being Satchel Paige. Joe and Flip go back in time and meet Satchel Paige (who plays in the negro leagues) and have all sorts of crazy adventures.

This book is a great book. I thought the whole concept

Dan Gutman’s book Satch & Me is really good. It is interesting because Satch is throwing over 100 mph and other stuff like that. There are so many exciting things in this book and that is why I like it. There are so many things that can go wrong! Will they?

One of the bad things that was in the 1920’s is that the blacks couldn’t do anything with whites. Satch wanted to play baseball in the major leagues, but he couldn’t play until he was 58. That was not too long after Jackie Robinson broke

In my book there are three main characters, Satch, Stosh, and Flip. Stosh is a teenage boy that lives in Louisville. Stosh's coach and best friend Flip owns a card shop. Flip tells Stosh about a long lost baseball player that some people referred to as the fastest pitcher of all time. His name is Satchel Paige. He played over 20 years in the Negro League and MLB. Stosh decides he wants to go back in time and meet the man himself. Flip along with Stosh go back in time and bring a speed gun with t ...more

Ben and I finished this book today. Okay, that's not altogether true. Our babysitter read the last two chapters to Ben on Saturday night, and I was curious how the story wrapped up (and I can't NOT finish a book!) to read those chapters today.

In this book--and the 7 or 8 others in the series--a boy travels back in time by clutching onto the baseball card of the past. He learns a lot about the ball player on the card and a few other life lessons along the way. In this book, he learns about the gr

The book I read is called„Satch and me’’ and it is written by Dan Gutman.
The book is something in between baseball history and fantasy
Book is about a regular boy’s life and magic baseball cards that take him back in time to the exact date written on the card. Joe Stosh wants to find out who threw ball the fastest, so he goes back to 1942 to measure Satchel Paige's fastball with a radar gun. Read this book to see if Satchel clocks 100 mph!

Josh is a boy that can travel through time with baseball cards. Him and his coach flip wanted to know who was the fastest pitcher ever. They did some research and they found out that Satch was one of the fastest pitchers in the world but it was more of a myth. There was only one problem, because Satch played in the negro leagues they never made any baseball cards for them in that period. So what they do is they get a card from a player in the Major leagues from the same time and managed to go to ...more

Satch was claimed to be one of the fastest pitchers ever but there were no pitch detecters back then to say how fast he was. Stosh and his little league coach Flip travel back in time to see how fast he really was. They find out he may be one of the fastest pitchers to play the game. I think this a great book and I recommend this book to people who like fantasy sports books. This book it full of history and what life was like in the mid/early 1900s lik

I liked this book because it is part of one of my favorite series. But, there were some "ups & downs." For example: lots of the time I would daze off, read a page or two and then have to re-read it because I would just stop, and think, 'W-w-what???? Urrrrrrrgh!!!! Now I have to restart the page!!!!!!!' Since I am writing this review now. January. I've already read more books like: "The Cruisers." I related both these books in class together because they both seem to have a theme of Discrimin ...more

Satch And Me by Dan Gutman is another great baseball card adventure book. Stosh wants to know if Satchel Paige is the fastest pitcher ever. When Satchel played during the 40's so he isn't aloud in the MLB because he is African American.

I loved this book because it is a mix of fiction and sports. They also travel in time so that is interesting. Also, it has some mystery in it.

I would recommend this book to 4th-7th graders. If you like sports, history, or mystery then you should read this book.

This book was called Satch and Me by Dan Gutman. The book was about a boy named Joe Stoshack who can travel back through time using baseball cards. In this story Joe and his baseball go back to 1943 and bring a radar gun. The reason they brought a radar gun is to record to one of the fastest pitches thrown ever by Satchel Page. Back then there were no such things as radar guns and African Americans weren't aloud to play in the MLB. Joe used his magic to travel back in time and him and his coach. ...more

Dan Gutman writes all sorts of books. They could be action or maybe something sports related. In this case he wrote about a man and too kids in a book titled"Satch and Me."

Satch and Me is a good book. I gave it four stars because it didn't have much action in it like Shoeless Joe and Me also Abner and Me. The best part was when they got to see Satchual Paige, believed to be the fastest pitcher in the world, pitch a fastball. Joe Stoshhack and his baseball coach Flip Valentini go back in time with a radar gun to see how fast he can pitch. The good part about this book is that they go back in time to 1942 and do all of the modern stuff that people back then thought ...more

Satch and Me written by Dan Gutman is to me the best book of this series. The most memorible part of the book is when Satchel Paige got a sreeding ticket and he had the nerve to give the police officer double the amount of the speeding ticket cause he was going to be comin that same waybthe next day.In this book Joey, his baseball coach, and there trusty radar gun go back in time to see if Satch really threw the fastest pitch ever.

Satch And ME was a very good book and I recommend you read it. I really got a sense of Satchs attitude and how he thought he was so great and how the team was structured around him. I always think it's funny just when Joe is about to make history, something goes wrong, and just like the other books this book did that as well. This book is very good and I think its the second best book in the series. Great read-five stars.

Satch and Me is a great book for anyone who loves baseball. Joe Stoshack goes back in time to see if Satchel Paige was the fastest pitcher in history. It shows how African Americans life was so bad and dull that no one actually knows until they are in their position. As Joe goes through the book realizing how bad life was he has to follow Satch and has to be treated like one. Something else I have to say is that for the time period it shows a great amount of facts for a fiction book. I loved the ...more

This book was a great book for baseball lovers and also people who love a great ending to a book.Flip a coach of a little league team and his friend stosh go back in time to meet satchel Paige and clock his fastest pitch.Things go a little unexpectedly but if you want to find out more get this book...
Stosh & Flip are at it again. The time jump plays a more expansive role in the plot of this fun series. At the center of the story is Stachel Paige. Mr. Gutman, like any author, revels in creating scenes to establish a slice of the larger-than-life character for one of baseball's great players and showman. The lore surrounding both Paige's antics and dominance on the field have become a wonderful legend.

Stachel Paige is one of the great mysteries of segregated baseball. Mr. Paige was a star

"This is the great Josh Gibson. The Brozed Bambino. Prob'bly the greatest hitter in baseball history. Hey Josh, is it true you hit 84 homers in 1936? Is it true you batted .600 one year?

"It's true," Gibson sighed. "All of it."

"Numbers don't mean nothin'," one of the other players said. "I remember this one time we were playin' in Pittsburgh and Josh hit one outta sight. Looked like it was never gonna come down. The next day we were playin' in Philly and this ball comes flying out of the sky. So

I thought it was amazingly written and was very detailed but easy to follow. It is perefectly paced and it sucks you in you never want to put it down. It is deafinatly a really good book. If you ever see it you should deafinatly give it a try. It is about a boy who can time travel. This time he tries to go back in time and see if Satchel Paige (one of the best pitchers of all time but he played mostly in the Negro leagues) threw the hardest pitch ever.
