Jason loves baseball, but likes collecting baseball cards even more. Unfortunately, Jason is not a very good baseball player and is cut from his team and sent to play on an extension team with other rejects.
Trying to cheer up, he goes to the Grandstand, a sports store, and discovers a legendary Negro baseball player named Buck McHenry who just might might be a school janitor in his town living under the name of "Mack Henry"!
When Mr. Henry admits that he is Buck McHenry to his grandson, Aaron, and to Jason, the news leaks out to Kim, another player on the extension team. Kim's father, a great, famous newscaster finds out and is about to tell everyone Mr.Henry's real identity! Soon Kim, Aaron, and Jason realizes that things might not always be what they seem!
This is a wonderful bok with a surprising ending. Once you start this book, you won't be able to put it down. Overall, I give Finding Buck McHenry five stars! Vivian Grade 5
