My favorite part of the story is learning about where Sammy came from, because I never knew much about Samy's background or about his team. I have never read before about The Chicago Cubs or any players from that team and I found it very interesting. This book shows a lot of lessons about good sportsmanship. This book has taught me not to get mad if I lose a baseball game. This book is part of a series of sports books all by Matt Christopher. He is a sports writer who has also written about hockey, tennis, basketball, and many others. I love them all.
I think this book a wonderful read for those people who like to play baseball or enjoy watching baseball on tv. I still wonder if Sammy is going to win the home run record. I hope he does,? we?ll have to wait and see.
