Follow Benny and his teammates as they learn about baseball, friendship and winning. And Benny becomes known as the boy with the golden arm.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
This was a really sweet book about a small group of friends making a little league baseball team. I don't understand the rules of the little league very well, but it made sense in the novel and I thought it was really awesome how they included a girl in their little league team. I particularly liked Harry, the main character's father and the coach of the team, and his unorthodox methods for teaching baseball, based on music.
The narrator, David Kresser, was not as impressive. He didn't sound very good in the recording and I had to pause frequently when the narration started to really annoy me.
