Descripción

Cooperstown! Josh is thrilled when all his hard training pays off in a big way and his team, the Titans, makes it to a national tournament in Cooperstown, home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. More is on the line for Josh than just a trophy. Winning would mean everything to his dad-now Josh's coach. Winning could mean a major endorsement deal for the Titans and the attention of big league scouts!

After a dirty play and a brutal injury threaten to sideline Josh, he spies suspicious activity at the tournament. He tries to tell his good friend Jaden about what he's seen, but she's too busy spending time with the L.A. Comets' star player, Mickey Mullen Jr., to want to get involved. Jaden says she's doing research for the newspaper . . . but is she? Now Josh has a rival-both on the field and off-as he swings for the fences in a game that quickly becomes more dangerous.

New York Times bestselling author Tim Green delivers a hard-hitting look at what some teams will do to win in this gripping companion to Baseball Great.

Sobre el autor

Tim Green, for many years a star defensive end with the Atlanta Falcons, is a man of many talents. He's the author of such gripping books for adults as the New York Times bestselling The Dark Side of the Game and American Outrage. Tim graduated covaledictorian from Syracuse University and was a first-round draft pick. He later earned his law degree with honors, and he has also worked as an NFL commentator for FOX Sports and NPR. His first book for young readers, Football Genius, inspired in part by his players and his own kids, became a New York Times bestseller and was followed by Football Hero, Football Champ, The Big Time, and Deep Zone. He drew on his experiences playing and coaching Little League for Rivals and Pinch Hit and two more New York Times bestsellers: Baseball Great and Best of the Best. Bestselling author Jon Scieszka called Tim Green's Unstoppable, a book about a boy's struggle with cancer that debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, "Absolutely heroic. And something every guy should read." Tim Green lives with his wife, Illyssa, and their five children in upstate New York.

    I downloaded this ebook from the library because my five year old wanted me to read him a story about baseball. He ended up not liking it due to the protagonists doing things they shouldn't do, but I think an older child around 8 to 12 would really enjoy it. The story is about the great 12 y.o. baseball player Josh, his goofy sidekick Benji, and their friend Jaden (who is a reporter) discovering corruption at a baseball tournament in Cooperstown that may possibly lead to a former star baseball player-turned-actor who has a son in the tournament. The in-game action scenes are great and the mystery has some interesting twists. Overall it's formulaic, but I think this is an enjoyable story for kids about sports, fairplay, and friendship. It's part of a series of books called Baseball Great.

    This sports mystery definitely shared some similarities with the Stevie and Susan books by John Feinstein. Josh, a baseball star, Jaden, a young reporter, and Benji, work to uncover a scandal at the National Baseball Hall of Fame Tournament in Cooperstown.

    Josh LeBlanc is back, and he's playing to win, even after getting hit in the head with an intentional beanball and having to have eye surgery. His team makes it into the Hall of Fame Championships tournament, and Josh discovers that a former major league player is doing everything he can to ensure that his son's California team wins it all... everything including paying off the head umpire who is absolutely NOT interested in fairness on or off the field. Josh has a couple daring escapes from the nasty umpire and the California thugs! Great baseball gameplay, hilariously funny conversations with his best frind Benji, and some problems with his oughta-be girlfriend Jaden keep the action moving. Anyone who enjoys baseball will get a kick out of this one! Reading the other Baseball Great book first is fun, but not necessary. 6th grade and up.

    another great baseball book by tim green. full of action and a little bit of mystery. the only thing i don't like is the main character's best friend. he's supposed to be the funny sidekick but instead he's just obnoxious. but overall the book is good.
