Synopsis

A Topps League Story Jinxed! by Kurtis Scaletta, Eric Wight

It s Chad s first spring as a batboy, and the Pine City Porcupines are hot until they come up against the league-leading Heron Lake Humdingers. Now Chad s got a whole lineup of problems: his favorite player, shortstop Mike Stammer, thinks he s jinxed; Dylan, the other batboy, doesn t even like baseball; there s a goofy new porcupine mascot on the field; plus, Chad has to fill in as batboy for the Herons. It s a good thing there s something in the cards his baseball cards, that is that can help Chad sort it all out. Praise for A Topps League Story: Jinxed This book will be an obvious choice for sports enthusiasts, as well as middle grade readers and struggling boy readers. Refreshingly, though, Scaletta has created a baseball enthusiast protagonist who has characteristics that all readers can relate to. --Library Media Connection
