I really liked this book because there was so much action you couldn't put it down! The descriptions of each baseball game made you feel excited and nervous. It was definitely a unique story because Sylvester has a very special relationship with the mysterious Mr. Baruth. Matt Christopher is an author of many books about baseball, and other sports. These books are similar because they each have a good moral to the story, are fast-paced, and generally have a hero.
I would recommend to anyone to read this book if they like baseball, mystery and action. It was one of my favorite Matt Christopher stories. I could put myself in Sylvester's position many times in the book. It was easy to relate to how discouraged he was at the beginning, and how hard it would be to continue hitting homers once he learned how.
