This book is about Bobby who wants to hit the ball. He was not a good hitter and the other team called him Strikeout. His friend, Willie, helped him learn to bat. Does Bobby get his wish? Find out if Bobby gets a hit.

My favorite part was when Willie gave Bobby the lucky hat, that was nice. I liked the book because baseball is fun. This story reminded me of when I started playing baseball. I was not very good either. It made me feel sad because Bobby could not get a hit.

I recommend this book to 1st and 2nd graders because kids will like Willie in the story; he helped Bobby. You should read this book because it teaches you a lesson. I learned not to make fun of somebody who can?t hit so well.
