My grandson loves reading all of Matt Christopher's baseball stories. I think every kid will like them and I'm Marvin P. Ferguson, author of BOYS ON THE GOLD COAST.
It all starts at the beginning of the year when the team practices. Bobby plays third base for the Sunbirds. He lives with his mom, but spends time with his dad on the weekends.
In the story, Bobby spends time with his Grandpa Alex and dad, who give him tips on base stealing. He uses their advice in a game and does well. Some kids in the stands say," you steal bases like a fox steals chickens!" After that they always called him a fox.
My favorite part was when Walter Wilson, the cowbirds pitcher was smoking in Bobby's boat. Bobby told him to stop. He threw it away, but it landed in the back of the boat. Because of a leaky gas line, the boat caught on fire. Bobby and Walter jumped out of the boat, and it exploded.
I really liked this book. The reason I liked it was because it is about sports. I think people that like baseball would really enjoy this book.
This book is about a boy named Bobby, whose parents are divorced. Bobby plays on a baseball team called the Sunbirds. He becomes a great baseball stealer and gets the nickname Fox. One day Bobby's dad tells him he is going out with a woman who is the mother of a boy named Walter. He is a pitcher for a baseball team called the Cowbirds. A few days later Bobby's dad tells him that he is getting a new job and may never see him again for a year. And on that day Bobby found out that his team was playing against Cowbirds that day.
Will Bobby's dad change his mind about the job? Will Bobby win the baseball game? Read the book to find out more.
My favorite character is Bobby because he is nice, fast, cool, and a good character. My favorite part is when Walter throws a cigarette and the boat blows up.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure, to laugh and loves sports.
