Home Run (Baseball Great) Reviews
Tim Green as written a great book called “Rivals”. The Titans have been on a roll lately. They were one game away from getting into the Hall of Fame Tournament. Jaden had scouted the Ohio team in their game so the could go to the championship against Josh. While scouting Jaden found out that the Ohio team’s pitcher was going to try to beam Josh in the head. Jaden informed the gang later. When Josh got up to bat he saw what Jaden warned him about. Josh got up to the plate and Planczeck through a wild pitch and it hit Josh in the face. “Josh saw stars and felt his body spin for just a split second before everything went fuzzy” (Pg. 19). Once the game was over Josh was taken over to the local hospital. At the hospital his family found out that Josh had broken a part of his skull right under the eye. Josh had surgery and could play in the tournament. After the team’s first win, Jaden came in with breaking news. That Mickey McMullen and his son (Mickey McMullen Jr.) were in the tournament. Also, they weren’t the favorites in the tournament. After the next two games Josh played his team was undefeated. After Josh had finished his game, he went to scout McMullen’s team. Three weeks later Josh and his team were up against McMullen’s team. The Titans were down 5-3 heading into the last inning against Mickey. Mickey McMullen came out to the mound and told his son to walk Josh. Mickey McMullen Jr. wanted to be the best and prove his father wrong. Mickey through the ball with all of his might and Josh smashed the ball. Benji was up and Mickey through with all he could. Benji smacked the ball it was high but not far enough. The ball hit the fence and bounced back in. Benji started to celebrate thinking he had hit a homerun. The right fielder through the ball towards home. Benji looked back and took off towards home. Will Benji make it? Will Josh and the Titans win? Recommend this book to anyone in the grades 6-8 who likes sports and realistic fiction.
This book is great at illustrating the twists and turns of Josh`s life of family and of baseball. The baseball great series has been a fun read and I look forward to reading the next whenever it comes out.
We are fans of Tim Green in our house. Another good one!
i bought it for my son , he likes author and entire series and cant put book down.
My deceased grandson is a character in the book, so that was positive for me. Also, I am a great baseball fan for any team (special fan of Cardinals and Pittsfield Saukees) so any baseball book would be favorites of mine.
My 10 year old son loves baseball books by Tim Green! He has been reading books by him for a little over a year now.
My son loved this book. Also it is very cool how Tim green goes around to schools and holds contests for character names. My sons friend is the "coach" in this book
