This time around, Mike and his cousin Kate are in the most famous ballpark in America--Yankee Stadium for a spring weekend series against the Seattle Mariners. But so is Mr. Robert Williams, the famous author of 'Ghosts in the Ballpark: A History of Haunted Baseball Stadiums and Super-natural Superstars.' Suddenly, everyone seems to be talking about the ghost of Babe Ruth and whether or not he'll show up this weekend. Mike and Kate are determined to find out and start unraveling clues as they begin to meet some of the characters hanging around the new stadium.
Just as in Ballpark Mysteries #1: The Fenway Foul-up, young readers will enjoy reading along as Mike and Kate don their super-sleuth caps and explore one of the world's most famous ballparks. Kelly weaves in just the right amount of interesting facts about the stadium and sets the scenes so well, you'll feel as though you're soaking up the sun and breathing in the smell of hot dogs and popcorn. Dugout Notes at the back of the book introduce young readers to 'The House that Ruth Built' and fun facts like how Babe Ruth sometimes liked to wear the same underwear for days because he didn't feel like changing it. Now these are the facts every young Yankee fan should know!
While Mike and Kate are waiting at a boring press conference in Yankee Stadium, the team official makes a startling announcement that perks up everybody's ears. Rumor has it that the ghost of Babe Ruth is lurking about haunting everybody in the new stadium.
The sense of mystery puts every reader on the edge of his or her seat as chills run up and down their spine just thinking about the possibility of the presence of The Great Bambino moving about throughout the park. Surely, this is a chilling, frightful experience to say the least.
Using baseball as a platform, David A, Kelly, the master mystery writer that he is, once again puts together another excellent unpredictable, suspense thriller that kids of all ages will like. Puzzling as it sounds, I can seat and enjoy reading Ballpark Mysteries#2 over and over again. Marvin P. Ferguson, author of THE UNKNOWN BASEBALL PLAYER.
