School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up Similar to Aaseng's ``You Are the Manager'' books (Lerner), this one asks readers to choose their own endingfrom the point of view of the owner of a professional team. Aaseng sets up ten situations from baseball history (including teams, players and owners from 1961 through 1982); in each, readers are given the information about the problem, such as whether or not the 1982 Yankees should sign Reggie Jackson. Aaseng gives the pros and cons, asks readers to decide which of three alternatives they choose and tells what really happened. The style is an easy-to-read ``sports-page prose.'' There are plenty of colorful sports idioms: ``axe the manager,'' ``fencebusters.'' For avid fans of pro baseball. Margaret Montgomery, West Vernon Elementary School, Vernon, B. C., Canada
