    a great book for all ages

    This book tells of a young boy named Billy who has to take care of his dad's farm after he goes to jail. Billy also loves to play baseball but had to quit his highchool team to care for the farm. So Billy and his mom build a baseball field on the farm and after practicing for about three weeks with their team challenge the towns youth baseball team at the farm. I liked this book because its easy for me to relate to because my father is constantly in and out of jail and I feel like I am like the man of the house when he is not there just like Billy did

    Farm versus Town Battle

    Farm Team is a book that revolves around a redneck boy named Billy in the spring and summer of 1971. Billy is the son of Mavis and Abner Baggs. He was born and raised on the farm. Billy wants to play baseball for the town team but his dad has him too occupied on the farm. Then, a car salesman named Randy Meyers sells Mavis a piece of junk car that stops running. Old Abner was mad. To get back at Meyers, Abner destroyed all of his cars and his business with his farm machinery. All that did was get Abner put in jail, leaving Billy in charge of the whole entire farm. You would think that would make it even harder for Billy to play ball. However, Mavis and Billy found spare time to make a baseball field in their pasture and organize a farm team. The greatest battle to occur in Flint for many years was the Farm Team versus the Town Team. To find out who wins, I guess you¿ll just have to read the book yourself. I really enjoyed reading Farm Team, written by Will Weaver. The book was about baseball, and it also had a very unique main character. One thing I didn¿t like was how the story ended. It should have talked more about what happened after the game. However, the book always had something interesting going on in it. I would recommend this book to more guys than girls. If you are any person who likes baseball, boy or girl, this is a good book to read.

    Farm Team

    I wasn't sure about this book at first, but the interesting book cover drew me to it. As I read the first chapter, I could see that I would like this book. It is about baseball, but if you don't like baseball, you could still like the book. There were so many different events, that tied in with baseball. Billy's family humored me throughout the book. His father was quite a character, and my favorite member of the family was Skinner the dog. All in all I say this book was one of the best that I ever read.
