Kelly, David A.  The Capital Catch (Ballpark Mysteries, #13), 104 pgs.  Illustrated by Mark Meyers  A Stepping Stone Book, 2017 (Random House).  CHAPTER BOOK  $4.99  Content: G.  

Mike and Kate are visiting Washington, D.C. and are asked by the President of the United States to help the President’s brother, Chip.  Chip plays for the Nationals Major League baseball team and his equipment keeps disappearing.  Mike and Kate use their usual good detective skills to uncover who is taking Chip’s things.  

My 1st grade son LOVES the Ballpark Mysteries series and this book doesn’t disappoint.  The characters are likable and the plot is well paced with enough mix of sports and detective work to keep the sports lover or mystery lover interested.  This a great series for beginning readers.
