“Now playing center field,” crackled the loudspeaker, “an unknown horse.”
“That’s no unknown horse,” said a stunned Kevin. “That’s Oscar. He’s playing center field.”
All his father could do was groan and stare. “The whole world has gone mad,” he finally said.
Mad as it may sound to have a horse playing center field, the New York Goats, first in the hearts of the fans and last in the National League—and one of the most bumbling baseball teams ever to hit the majors—really need Oscar. Inspired by the horse’s brilliant playing in center field, the Goats miraculously pull themselves together, grab the pennant, and seem sure-fire bets to take the series until—Oscar is horse-naped! What happens then to Oscar and to the Goats should keep you roaring in your seat until the very last out!
A best-selling children’s book at the time of its publication a generation ago, "The Horse That Played Center Field" was made into an animated two-part film by ABC-TV. Now for the first time, this rollickingly funny book is available in a Kindle edition.
