More About the Author

This is hard. I'm a pretty regular Jersey guy who spent fifteen years trying to write newspaper articles, magazine articles, screenplays, books for adults, and just about everything else before I discovered the one thing I'm good at--writing fiction for kids. I aim for kids who DON'T like to read, and hopefully the kids who DO like to read will enjoy my stuff too. For all the gory details about me, check out my web site.

.....Dan Gutman's "Ray and Me" is an excellent baseball fantasy story. The story follows Joe Stoshack, better known as Stosh, who has the ability to travel back to any point in time by holding a baseball card from that year. After his Little League coach, Flip, asks him to pitch instead of playing shortstop, he is hit in the head with a baseball and wakes up from a coma two weeks later in the hospital. Flip, now sorry he insisted Stosh play pitcher, tells him about Ray Chapman. Chapman was a major league baseball player who, on August 16, 1920, was hit in the head by a pitch from Carl Mays and died that night. That one pitch ended Chapman's life and essentially ended Mays's career. Knowing about Stosh's powers, Flip gives him a Carl Mays baseball card and encourages him to travel back and try to save Chapman's life. He is shocked to realize his power no longer work. It is only after a few weeks of recovery that the tingling sensations from holding a baseball card return to Stosh, and his powers work again. He immediately goes back in time using the Mays card. He tries to save Chapman's life, bringing a batting helmet with him (a safety device that didn't exist in the 1920s).
.....This story is a fantastic combination of baseball history and time-traveling fantasy. It combines the life of Ray Chapman, a real person who is the only major league player to die from a pitch, with the life of Joe Stoshack, a fictional Little Leaguer with the power to travel back in time. It fantastically depicts what might have happened on August 16, 1920. This is why I think "Ray and Me" deserves five out of five stars.

This is another baseball fantasy story. While holding up his magic baseball card, Stosh travels back in time to try and save Ray Chapman who dies after being hit by a pitched baseball. Wow!
The reality of this exciting baseball thriller is when Stosh becomes a pitcher for a Little League team after playing third base.
Back in time Stosh takes a batting helmet with him as a safety device that didn't exist back in the 1920's. It's hard for me to believe sometimes that batting helmets is a necessity in baseball today. I suppose when I see a baseball player wearing a batting helmet I merely take it for granted.
This is a fantastic baseball story that combines baseball history with traveling back in time. Chapman is the only person that I know of who ever died after being hit by a pitched baseball. Kids won't want to put this story down until they read the last page. I strongly recommend this book for kids of all ages. I give "Ray & Me" five stars and I'm Marvin P. Ferguson, author of THE UNKNOWN BASEBALL PLAYER.

My 12 year old son is not much of a fan for reading, but the minute he finds out that another of the Dan Gutman Baseball card adventures is available we get it. He read this one in one day. For moms of boys who don't like to read, try this series. It will be a hit!

This book is a great fit for all sports fans. I think the author did a great job on the book with sneaking facts in there without being too obvious. The author brought a lot of excitement to the book. I rated it 5 stars because I am a sports fan and enjoy learning about sports history. This book had me flipping through the pages like a cheeta on a sugar high.
