Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed author of the Parents’ Choice Jim & Me, Dan Gutman adds a fictional twist to the true story of pitching legend “Satchel” Paige. After facing a flamethrowing Little League hurler, 13-year-old “Stosh” Stoshack time-travels back to 1942 to join Satchel on an unforgettable road trip to the Negro League World Series. With nobody out and the series on the line, Stosh watches as Old Satch intentionally walks three straight batters, waves all but his catcher off the field, and then challenges the best hitter in baseball.

Great story!

I listened to this with my boys, and it's one of their favorites in this series. Gutman's storyline repeats through these books, but we learned about baseball history and wanted the story to go on when it was done.

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

My son and I read the first part and listened to the last. The reader brought SO MUCH life to the characters, I want to listen to it again through his storytelling.
