By Lori Calabrese VINE VOICE on March 21, 2011
Format: Paperback
After I read Ballpark Mysteries #1: The Fenway Foul-up by David A. Kelly, I knew young readers would eat up this new series like a box of Crackerjack. And as soon as I got my hands on Ballpark Mysteries #2: The Pinstripe Ghost, I knew I was right.

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!

Mr Kelly can't write fast enough for my son. He was diagnosed dyslexic at 5 and after 5 more years of struggling to get him to read, he can't put these books down! The content is interesting enough for his age group yet easy enough for him to read most of it on his own without frustration. They have been just challenging enough for me to feel he is learning something new with every chapter. The fact that they are mysteries makes it the perfect series.I hope Mr. Kelly has no plans of quitting any time soon. These books are changing my son's outlook on reading. Thank you!

I have read this series with a group of third grade students and the students really liked it. I was pleased to read an author that has written many more books with this theme because I try very hard to get my struggling readers to want to read more titles from an author. Both the girls and boys liked this series and have decided to take them out from my room for their silent reading books!

The Ballpark Mysteries series is the perfect series for a young boy who is obsessed with baseball. He was so excited to read these books and finished them in no time! I didn't read this myself, but according to him it was a very good book. It has since been passed down to his younger brother, who isn't so much into baseball but enjoys mystery. So it's a perfect book for the both of them! Covers all the bases (get it?!)

My 7 year old sports nut LOVES these books! He can't wait for the next one! The stories are easy for him to follow, but the book is challenging enough to make his teacher satisfied for weekly book reports.

Do you believe in ghost? There is enough talk to go around to have some people convinced that ghost actually do exist. Unless I were superstitious, which I'm not, I don't believe in ghost. Yet, in this suspense thriller there are some folks who do. Good luck to them. Yes, and I know, ghost come out all the time on Halloween.
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.
