In this book, a boy with a deaf father, travel to watch the Dodgers baseball team play both the Giants and the St. Louis Cardinals. The dad didn't take interest in baseball until after going to the first game with his son and they both became really interested in Jackie Robinson, the first pro baseball player. The author's note at the end said that parts of this book was based on true parts of his life, such as the deaf father.

I would use this book to help teach about Jackie Robinson and I could also use this book to teach about disabilities.
