Item Details

"Daydreamer Jason, 11, has just been dropped from his Little League team.Seeking solace at the baseball-card shop, he makes a startling hypothesis: 'Buck McHenry, ' star pitcher of the Negro Leagues , could be school custodian Mack Henry. Mr. Henry's identity, in doubt through much of the book, provides a mystery, a bittersweet revelation, and a satisfyingly dramatic denouement. The characterizations are pungent, the action (on and off the diamond) involving. A solid, rewarding story." 'K.
