About These Books
all these books added much to the baseball genre, as well as eliminating some of the things that multicultural individuals had to deal with while being members of professional baseball teams. Outside of this the other two stories also had a great storyline and on top of that, amazing illustrations! I was a huge baseball fan when I was younger and I know that I received these books I would've been in absolute joy. Whether you are a fan of baseball or you have someone else in your family that is, these books are definitely ones that I would recommend due to the subject matter and to the overall quality of the books themselves!
