Recommended for: 4th grade up - especially baseball fans
Read in February, 2009

3-1/2 stars. Also a Coretta Scott King illustrator honor book, which is highly deserved because the illustrations, mainly consisting of player and team portrait paintings, are beautiful - and to me, the most interesting part of the book. By trying to name so many names, the text gets a little redundant. You don't have to read the whole book to get the flavor, but do look at all the pictures! Baseball fans, in particular, may eat this up.
