Looking for baseball action? Check out this Sports Story Series book from Washington Post KidsPost columnist and author Fred Bowen – perfect for fans of Mike Lupica and Tim Green.
For Jake, there is only one thing he loves more than playing shortstop for his team, and that’s winning. So when newcomer Adam joins the team, Jake is excited to see that this guy can do it all—pitch, hit, field!
But as their team racks up win after win, Adam’s talents dominate every game and Jake can’t help but wonder: Do he or the other players even matter? Or will he learn that even the best players must rely on their teammates?
Author Fred Bowen’s book is an action-packed story of teamwork and friendship inspired by Babe Ruth and the 1927 Yankees, the group that many have called “The Greatest Team of All Time.”
