Format: Hardcover
This is an 'old-timey' story, but just about perfect to have YOUR youngster read to you at his/her bedtime.

The other reviewer here gives you a great summary, though you may wish to skip if you want to keep the surprise!!!

I read this at age 11 and it hooked me onto reading books. Wonderful story of how a boy can overcome limitations in his life and still succeed. His limitation was living in a rural setting where his family had a barn near their house and, in order to practice hitting baseballs, he had to make sure he hit every ball toward the barn, instead of toward the house. When he grew up he enjoyed a unique career in baseball.

I do not understand why there is no paperback version of this book.

While waxing melancholic, i went back to the time in elementary school, where once a year, we got a list of books, of which we would check off the ones we wished to buy. The Kid Who batted 1000 was my favorite book of many I read as I kid. It is a story I read over and over. Many kids long to be a baseball player, but this book is not restricted to them. It is a wonderful read for the young. I can not recommend it enough. It says something that 47 yrs after the last time I read this, it is etched in my memory. I am buying a copy now, for one last read. I can then donate it to a place where kids today can enjoy it. The book deserves to stay, forever.
