Wild Pitch by Cal Ripken Jr - ADVISABLE

Ripken Jr, Cal Wild Pitch, 197 pgs, Disney Hyperion Books, 2013. $16.99. Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: G.  

6th grader Robbie Hammond was the best pitcher in the League, until a wild pitch sent a batter to the hospital.  Now he can’t find the strike zone with a GPS, his team blames him for their losses, and the coach, his dad, thinks he’s just in a slump.  Can Robbie get past his fear of hitting another batter, and what about the boy he beaned? 

This is part of Ripkin’s All-Stars Series.  A great recommendation for the young baseball player, it’s full of game and practice action.
