Another reason I chose this book was because it was short enough that I could read in the time given. My favorite characters were Stosh or Joey , Flip, and Satch. Stosh, a thirteen-year-old boy, was a time traveler and a little league player. Flip, a year-old man, was a baseball coach, a drug store owner, and a baseball player.

Gutman has again crafted a delightful mix of humor, magic and history surrounded by the sheer joy of baseball. There was a problem adding your email address.
