The book I read was The Boy who Saved Baseball. I really liked this book. This book was about a boy that rides into town and claims to know the secret to a famous baseball player that never told anyone. This is all happening while a single baseball game is depending on the survival of the town. The whole town depends on one single baseball game.
I really liked this book because I thought it had suspense. It was a very good book. I like the author of this book a lot because he was descriptive. I would read any other book by this author. This book also made me happy.

The Boy Who Saved Baseball is a very good book. [...]
What I liked about this book was the story. This book had a good story to it. This book shows if you you don't give up you can win. Thats what I liked about this book.

People that don't like this kind of story would not like this book. If certain people don't like baseball they will not like this book. Thats why this book is called The Boy Who Saved Baseball.

My overall opinion is that this book is a great book. It has a good story. I would give this book four out of five stars. This was a great book.

This is a quality book that I've given to several kids. My grand kids all play baseball but they don't always like baseball books. Both my grandsons and my grand daughter (9 - 12) enjoyed reading this book. There is suspense and lots of action. This book received high reviews from others and I depend upon those reviews. This book has not disappointed me. Keep those reviews going!

Do you love baseball? Then you will love The Boy Who Saved Baseball--even though you may not know exactly who the boy is. Is it Tom or Cruz or Del Gato? Is it the wind? Read this amazing story to find out. I promise you will love this book. I have tons of baseball books but this one is my all time favorite.

The reason I rewarded this book 5 stars is because it is no joke one of the best books I have ever read. And by the way a cross fire hurricane works!I tried it at our baseball game today and it did the same exact movement as it described in the book, it drops at the last minute and comes at you from the side.

This book is about a kid named Tom who got his summer camp baseball team in a lot of trouble. It starts off with his town about to be demolished. Tom doesn't want his town called Dillontown to be torn down to bites. At a town meeting the owner of the Lucky Strike Field, Doc, tells the town that there will be a baseball game deciding the fate of their town.

The team had one week to get ready to beat the other team. After one day a kid came to the camp from the mountains, and his name was Cruz. The team practice for many hours and many days. Cruz and tom went to a guy house to get him to coach their baseball team. Later that day the guy came and taught them all the basics. Cruz made a video game that helps the team with their batting skills. Finally it was game day.

I think that the book was okay, but it wasn't great. One reason why the book was good was that the book gave the reader a good lesson. It said that you can do anything if you put everything into it. It also showed how a baseball team fights for their beloved town. Everyone should have a chance to be someone special and be the winner at something important.

Another thing about the book was that the author should have had an illustration of how the field looked like before the team cleans it up. All the book had was a map of the town. The entire book said about the field was that it had rusty bleachers, a stone wall, and a white cross that represented the miners who died in a cave-in. He could have said something about the how long the field was or was it a nice field or a horrible field. The book needed a little more detail of some characters and the field.

I didn't really like the ending of this book. I thought that the writer would tell us what happened to Cruz. All it said was that Cruz left his game so Tom could use and sell it for big bucks. The only good thing about the ending was that Since, Doc died he gave everything to Tom and Tom left everything the same. He got about 1.5 million dollars from the land and the video game.

I would recommend this book to people who really like baseball. It would also be good book for people who need encouragement with different situations. This book has no bad language and no bad things in it. The book was a little confusing during the end, but it was still a good book to read. Thank you for reading this review.

I am 11 years old and I play baseball. This was a great book I think because it had soooo many things that were going bad but then turned into great things. It made me feel...when you try your hardest, you will always win the game.

A very good book! I first learned about it from a great baseball social network - [...] . It's all players, coaches, and umpires from all levels of the game.
