Synopsis

A Topps League Story Zip It! by Kurtis Scaletta, Eric Wight

These fun, illustrated early chapter books feature the adventuresand misadventuresof the Pine City Porcupines, a hapless baseball farm team, and their two batboys: Chad, an avid baseball fan with a huge baseball card collection, and Dylan, who doesn t know a thing about the sport. The fictional series has a unique twist: Chad solves problems by using information from Topps cards of real figures from modern baseball history. Pine City Porcupines batboy Chad breaks an important unofficial rule of baseball: Don t talk to the starting pitcher when he s got a perfect game going, where not a single opponent has reached base. Now, because Chad opened his mouth, the entire Pines dugout is upset, and the team may lose to the second-to-last-place West Valley Varmints. Chad has to consult his baseball card collection to figure out how to help his beloved Pines pull off the perfect game.
