The Boy Who Saved Baseball
on February 10, 2005
Tom Gallager finds himself in a tight spot! The fate of Dilltown is on this one baseball game, winner takes the field. Just because Tom Gallager had to open his big mouth.
Darn! if only Tom Gallager could get crazy old Dante Del Gato ( the best hitter ever known in baseball) to come down and coach his team. He lives high in the mountains of Dilltown and has not spoken to folks in years. Tom Gallager and Cruz Del La Cruz go up to his house and convince him to coach the team. Dante Del Gato has once played on Lucky Strike Field and doesn't want it to turn into a lake.
I think John H. Ritter was trying to tell me that even if you lose you still do good in all. But if one of your best players leaves you can still win the game against All-Stars. So try your best whenever you play a sport, in school, or doing your homework.
John H. Ritter's last Novel was lively and dramatic. I recommend this book to all ages and grades above . This book is a fun book to read in groups also, or on your own.
