- What I most enjoyed about the book was that it was about baseball
- The book was really well written because it always kept you interested
- The end of the book wasn't the best because it left you hanging and it doesn't have a second book so you have to guess what happens next
- I would really only recommend this book to people that get into baseball, because that what it is about and if you don't like baseball then you wouldn't like this book
