I enjoyed this book and think it would be great for middle grade boys who are big baseball fans. I think it's almost every boy's dream to be a batboy and get to know the players especially Micky Mantle and Roger Maris. The author added some depth by including some important issues like divorce, stepfamilies, and bullies. Louis is a likable character and I think the author does a good job of describing the 60's in a friendly way that kids can relate to. I only wish that he had added an author's note at the back of the book giving more information on the home run race and the careers of Micky Mantle and Roger Maris. I was also disapointed that there wasnot a page for further reading.
