A third baseman is sick with anxiety about whether or not to help his team by using his knack for knowing where the batter is going to hit the ball.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4 By carefully studying the way opposing players stand at the plate and the way they swing the bat, T.V. Adams is able to predict where they are likely to hit the ball. He puts his skill to use in his team's games with mixed results. Some teammates seem to resent his well-intentioned directions on how to play the hitters, a newspaper reporter mentions T.V.'s talent in a column, and an anonymous caller tells him not to use his "psychic" ability in the next game "or else." The lengthy descriptions of the game action leave little room for developing any of the problems, however, and the solutions come too quickly and simply. Children making the transition from beginning readers to "real" novels may find a use for this otherwise forgettable effort. Elaine Fort Weischedel, Turner Free Library, Randolph, Mass.
