A Baseball Book that Brings the Game Alive
Reviewed in the United States on January 12, 2015
In Baseball World Series by Matt Christopher, the main characters are named Liam and Carter. They are cousins that live in Pennsylvania together, but Liam’s family moves to California. When they both lived in Pennsylvania, they played baseball together. They had an enemy named Phillip DiMaggio. He played a mean trick on Carter in baseball camp. When Liam moves to California, he is surprised that he ends up in Phillip’s home town! And Liam is even more surprised when he ends up on the same team as Phillip! Their team works hard and they make it to the championship game where Liam faces Carter’s team . . .
The conflict is that Liam has to face Carter in the Little League World Series!
I really like this book. The author does a good job explaining plays in the game. For example, when the author shows how Liam’s team makes a double play, he makes it easy for me to picture the players’ movements. Also, I got very attached to the players because they remind me of people I know. I would highly recommend reading this book. One thing to know is that the first book is actually supposed to be read last. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did! (by my 4th grade son)
