As the Travelin' Nine head to Chicago, the team is filled with hope and optimism. After a disappointing loss in Cincinnati at the start of their baseball tour, the heroes of the Spanish-American War bounced back in Louisville. Doc and Woody came through with timely fielding, Crazy Feet and Tales smacked clutch hits, and champion horses provided that extra kick, helping the barnstormers to their come-from-behind victory.

By the end of the thrilling contest, there was no doubt in the minds of Griffith, Ruby, and Graham that the baseball their Uncle Owen had given to them on the night of their father's funeral was magical.

Indeed, the mysteries surrounding their baseball, which their uncle had urged them to keep secret, were deepening. And as excited as they were by the barnstormers' win, the Payne siblings' fears and worries continued to grow. Uncle Owen's tattered, bloody letter had warned them about the Chancellor. What's more, they'd seen the Chancellor's men lurking at the Louisville game. Griffith and Ruby now realized that their adventure was about far more than raising money to pay off a family debt. But what exactly was it about?

After the Louisville match, Griffith confronted his mother. She denied that the Chancellor could be involved, but she promised to answer all of Griffith's questions on the train to Chicago. Download and start listening now!

    " I love this series for 2nd and 3rd graders, but it can be enjoyed by all elementary. There is mystery, history, baseball, magic, and awesome illustrations. Each book takes place in a different city that played an important role in the beginnings of baseball. Kids love them. "

    " Interesting premise.
    The setting has a lot of potential.
    Not a great start to a series.
    I'm going to have to read the second book before I can really pass judgment. "

    " I liked this book because it was for like little kids playing. It was like back in the days look. And i never really saw how it looked to thats why i liked it. "

    " This book was more like a first chapter. Unless a kid was only interested in reading baseball books, I can't imagine that they would be motivated enough to pursue this series. "

    " I like this book because it's a lot of genres at once: sports, historical fiction, mystery, and fantasy. It has something for everybody "
