Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Ten-year-old Bobby Ellis loves everything about baseball, from the hits to the hot dogs. That's why he calls himself Bobby Baseball! Every day he dreams of becoming a major league pitcher and joining the stars in the Baseball Hall of Fame. And what better place to start his career than right here on his own Kids Club team, the Hawks?

But the hawks' coach happens to be Bobby's father, who has other ideas. "You're a natural second baseman," he says, expecting Bobby to be a model player who never makes a single mistake. Get real, Dad!

When Bobby pitches three winning games in a row, the Hawks rule. Suddenly Bobby's life seems like one big basball game--games on the field, games on TV, and games in his mind. Can Bobby keep on winning? Can he count on Dad?

When I read Bobby Baseball I knew I would love it. The reason is that I love baseball. I would say this book made me love to read books. I would recommend this book to kids who love to learn about growing up and baseball. This is a great book for ages 9-13. Especially kids who absaloutly love baseball.

A Kid's Review on December 6, 2005
Format: Paperback
If you like baseball you should read Bobby Baseball. This book is realistic fiction. Bobby Ellis is 10 years old, and he has a bad temper. In this book, Bobby gets in trouble by his bad temper. This story takes place at Bobby's home and at a baseball field.

If you like some happy parts, and some sad parts those are other reasons you should read Bobby Baseball. Here is a part I personally like. I liked when Bobby pitched a game and won. I didn't like that Robert K. Smith didn't give a lot of detail about the setting. I also didn't like that the Hawks lost in the playoffs. Those are some parts in the story.

All around this book is really good. Here's another part most people will probably like. Bobby pitched and only let up 1 run. I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in baseball. I think this book is appropriate for ages 8-12.

A Kid's Review on December 13, 2007
Format: Paperback
I am reading the realistic fiction book called Bobby Basball written by Robert Kimmel Smith.
Bobby Baseball is about a boy named Bobby who was anxious all winter to play for his dad's team the Eagles. He wants to be a pitcher and be in the hall of fame. When it is finally baseball season he asked his dad to pick him but his dad might not. Bobby brother tells him that Bobby not might want to be on his dad's team because if he does something wrong his still his coach and has to tell him even if he yells. Bobby's dad tells him that if he gets in trouble and tells him to run there is no arguing. You'll have to read the book to find out if Bobby gets on his dad's team or someone else's. You will also find out what he does in his games.
I thought this book is very good for people who love baseball like myself.

This is probably the best book I've ever written for readers of Age 9-12. Bobby's struggle with his father is extremely vivid and accurate. Even better is his temper when he doesn't get what he wants. Bobby is just a typical boy who has a thirst to be the best at baseball, and it consumes his entire life. In the end, Bobby finally realizes that life does not always work the way we want it to, and that we might have to take the good with the bad. A perfect TEN in every sense of the word!
