This story entailed five different stories about five of the best baseball stories. I am not very interested in baseball so this wasn’t a favorite of mine. However the author did make me feel as if I was watching the each scene take place wanting the player to score or for the player to get the other team out depending on who was the main character. I think many young baseball enthusiast would love to read this book or this book may turn them into a baseball fan.

Recommends it for: everyone
Recommended to Liam by: dad
I think that this book was to encourage people to do what they like and don't let other people tell you what to do and how they think your life will end up. I strongly recommend people who are down because they don't know what to do with their life to read this book. If I were to rate this I would give it a five star. Love baseball:)
