3.0 out of 5 stars The book for people who eat, drink, and sleep baseball, March 6, 2007
This review is from: The Boy Who Saved Baseball (Paperback)
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.
