Synopsis

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

These fun, illustrated chapter books for 7 to 9 year old readers feature the adventures and misadventures of the Pine City Porcupines, a hapless team, including Chad their erstwhile bat boy who's got a huge baseball card collection and sat-happy Dylan, Chad's best friend. While the team, its league and the games are fictional, the baseball cards the bat boy uses to help solve the player's problems are based on real Topps cards. The 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, the team may lose to the second to last place West Valley Varmints, and Chad has to consult his baseball card collection to figure out how to help his beloved team pull off the perfect game.
