Yes, it's about baseball and numbers, but it doesn't try to educate the young reader on VORP calculations or the merits of combining SLG and OBP. Instead, it goes back to basics and relies on the classics: one baseball, two bats, three gloves, four catchers, five baserunners, six mascots, seven hitters, eight pitchers, nine pennants, and ten baseball caps.

Older readers will appreciate the inclusion of Ivan Rodriguez as a Texas Ranger; Pedro Martinez as a Boston Red Sock; and cameos by Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire. It gives a bit of a dated feel by not including future steroid abusers Barry Bonds and Jason Giambi, but seeing Junior Griffey and Randy Johnson more than compensates.

The tension builds slowly but progressively, and culminates in a finale you won't soon forget. I know I won't... or can't.

My 19-month old daughter loves this book - she can even identify her "favorite" teams when they appears on the pages. It's a simple and colorful introduction to the extreme basics of baseball (i.e. pitcher, baserunner, bat, ball, glove, etc.), and you can elaborate on the pages by identifying brands (for bat, ball, glove), teams, and players.
