Book Overview

Tom Gallagher is in a tight spot. The fate of the Dillontown team rests on the outcome of one baseball game, winner take all. If Tom's team loses, they lose their field too. But how can they possibly win? Just when everything seems hopeless, a mysterious boy named Cruz de la Cruz rides into town and claims to know the secret of hitting. Not to mention the secrets of Dante Del Gato, Dillontown's greatest hitter ever. Since he walked away from the game years ago, Del Gato hasn't spoken a word to anyone. But now he might be Tom's only hope for saving his hometown. From the award-winning author of Over the Wall and Choosing Up Sides comes this imaginative tale of one boy's struggle to preserve the spirit of the game he loves.

   It was an amazing book
I would definitely recommend it to 12 year old children. It would also be good for children 9 to 100 years old.
   Very disappointed! The story however is great
I ordered this item, but it stated that it was in acceptable condition. I am getting it and the cover was all scratched and there is writing all over it along with torn pages. Ann Jones was very disappointed! The story is great, however. My son has been 8 and loves it.
   Good book for boys
They loved it especially since they play baseball. I would imagine it '' a good book for young readers. But I did not appreciate the use of slang terms in the Mexican dialect quite as much. Do boys of this culture really talk like that? To me, it seemed a bit racist...
   Thé boy boy saved baseball
5 stars I love this book for the way it was written and how Doc saved baseball. It was sad when Doc died.
   Great for baseball lovers!
Perfect for baseball - loving kiddos who need to get some reading done this summer! The story grabs you right from the start!
   Not a winner
Wow... this book is really bad. Over-the-top, confusing, Cheesy. My children love ALL books - especially baseball books, and they made me stop after chapter 6.
   Great book
My son, who loves baseball, loved this book! He gave it only 4 stars because someone died and was sad lol.
   Easy Reading
I can not remember what year I bought all the books, but I do remember the grandson telling me how much he enjoyed each book.
   Used as gift for my grandson
He read this book and loved it over a weekend.
   Son who doesn’t like reading, loved it!
The only thing he doesn 't like is Diary of a wiggle kid, but he has yet to hate a type book of novel ''.
