From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-A fascinating look at the inner workings of a major-league stadium. Readers are given a glimpse of the variety of individuals involved in the operation of a big-league ballpark, from the computer operators who control what appears on the scoreboard to the "pickers" and "blowers" who clean up after a game. They will also learn some facts about the major leagues (approximately 70 balls are used in a typical game, the balls used by the Orioles are all rubbed with mud that comes from a secret location on the Delaware River, etc.). Profusely illustrated with outstanding full-color photographs of Baltimore's Camden Yards, this title is sure to be a hit.-Richard Luzer, Fair Haven Union High School, VT
