You wanna know who threw the fastest pitch ever?

Many baseball players claim that Satchel Paige was the fastest pitcher in the history of the game. Stosh and his coach, Flip Valentini, are on a mission to find out. With radar gun in tow, they travel back to 1942 and watch Satch pitch to power hitter Josh Gibson in the Negro League World Series. They soon learn that everything about Satch is fast--whether it's his talking, driving, or getaways. But is he really the fastest pitcher who ever lived?

This baseball card adventure is a whirlwind of excitement, drama, and curveballs--starring one of the liveliest athletes in the game

   This May Be The Best
I am happy that all of the segregation BS was gone in my lifetime. During a Globetrotters' game, I saw Satchel pitch a basketball with deadly accuracy and speed. You can learn about the Negro Leagues in this book. Josh was one of the greats who never made it to the show, but he died ten months before the show started. That is terrible. Josh and Satch were rivals in baseball. The meeting recounted in this book is so crazy that it would never happen in a major league baseball game.I wish I could go back in time and see it, because I would love to see it. You will not believe how Satch messed with Josh. The author says that the dialogue comes from Satchel's own notes, so all I could see was Wow! If you buy it, you will like it.

   A great series for lovers of baseball!
D an Gutman books are popular with my students. The boys in my classroom mostly read them, but there are a few girls that pick them up. Dan Gutman books are good.

T he book was great. isaac wears 29 on his jersey and is my son's favorite player. This book made me feel alive to isaac. The question brought up more discoveries. When asked, do you want to donate the book? He gave me a hard no.I think we will revisit the book. Thank you to the author for a job well done.

   Good book, but...
My boys liked it. It is very historical. My boys were a little frightened by the shooting of Stosh, Flip, and Satchel.
