In this ALA Jr. Literary Guild selection by John H. Ritter, a rough-and-tumble band of batsmen from a California boomtown insist they're the country's best baseball team. To back up their boast, they make a wager with the 1881 champion Chicago White Stockings. Into this high-stakes climate rides 12-year-old baseball virtuoso Jack Dillon with his newfound friend, Billy the Kid. This sets the stage for a fun-filled, rip-roaring baseball shootout.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Drazkowski | 8/31/2013

    " interesting story that mixes the "wild west" with baseball. Popular figures, such as Billy the Kid, are used, as well as real baseball terms/things, such as the Chicago White Stockings. This story would appeal more to boys, and a knowledge of baseball would help the reader. "
