These fun, illustrated early chapter books feature the adventures—and misadventures—of the Pine City Porcupines, a hapless baseball farm team, and their two batboys: Chad, an avid baseball fan with a huge baseball card collection, and Dylan, who doesn’t know a thing about the sport. The fictional series has a unique twist: Chad solves problems by using information from Topps cards of real figures from modern baseball history.

Teddy “Bear” Larrabee, a slugger on the Pine City Porcupines, gets his 823rd base hit on his birthday, August 23—and it’s a home run! The Bear is a big believer in the power of numbers, so he asks Pines batboy Chad to retrieve the ball from the stands. There’s only one problem: the crabby fan in the ballpark who caught it. Chad really wants to keep the Bear happy and slugging, so he’s just got to figure out what the fan would be willing to trade for that 823 ball.

About the Author:

Kurtis Scaletta is the author of several acclaimed middle school novels, including Mudville, one of Booklist’s 2009 Top 10 Sports Books for Youth. He lives in Minneapolis. Eric Wight is the creator of the popular Frankie Pickle illustrated chapter book series. He lives in Pennsylvania with his family.

From Booklist:

This fourth Topps League story finds batboy Chad helping Porcupine slugger Teddy Larrabee secure the return of his lucky home-run ball. Teddy’s superstitions bring about a batting slump that threatens the team’s playoff chances, but when Chad meets the grumpy fan who caught the ball, he learns why the item is important to him, too. Chad’s offer of one of his own valuable baseball cards in trade ultimately brings understanding to everyone. Short illustrated chapters, much play-by-play commentary, and behind-the-scenes glimpses of the players will appeal to sports fans and beginning chapter book readers. Grades 2-4. --Kay Weisman
