Hutch wants to be the best shortstop ever, but that's hard when he's stuck at second base. As he tries to prove himself worthy he also has to take his team to the championship game on "The Big Field". At the same time, him and his dad get in a fight about baseball. This was one of the best books I read this summer, and I would definitely recommended this to both parents and kids.

To Hutch, Shortstop is a way of life.He also feels that way about baseball. He wants to go all the way to the pros without suffering the same fate as his father. His father ,a pitcher,threw his arm out and was fired. To play shortstop Hutch has to play harder and better on the field and off the field. Without the drunken fate of his father.

Book Review: The Big Field, Mike Lupica The book for these six weeks is The Big Field. The author of the book Mike Lupica was born in May 11, 1952 in Oneida, New York. He is best known for his provocative commentary on sports in the New York Daily News.  Mike Lupica likes to write a lot of sport books.  This book is an excellent choice for kids who love the sport of baseball, mainly for the good tips it gives you about the game and the way it tells you how to be competitive.  This is one fantastic book and I highly recommended by many others. The reason for this book is that it informs many young athletes to become better at baseball and to love the sport. The Big Field is an incredible book and I like how it teaches you about the sport. Many athletes look forward to summer not only to sleep in late but to play the amazing game of baseball.  I love to see how many kids get to competitive n the summer even if they’re best friends.  The game of baseball is played and favored by many people.  This book tells you about how you should play the game and how it feels. It gives you the rush of how it feels when it’s the bottom of the ninth inning its tied and your up to bat. All the pressure is on you and all you have is a million butterflies’ in your stomach. You see that fast ball coming straight down the middle and all you do is keep your head down and get that base it that wins you he game. The most amazing feeling in that situation is that you here the amazing parents and fans that support you going crazy screaming for you like you just won the world series.  When you get that feeling it just feels like you’re the super hero of your team and your teammates sure treat you like one. The main reason I like this book is that its so good it makes you feel like your actually in the game. Mike Lupica is an awesome book writer and to me I honestly recommend many of his books to be read by many. He makes you feel like your in every single book and its so good you don’t ever want to stop reading it.

The Big Field “Crack!” This is the sound that you will frequently hear in my book The Big Field. Hutch and his friends Cody and Darryl play baseball throughout the summer. They want to lead up to winning the championship game at the end of the season. I liked the way the author developed the characters by giving good descriptions about their personalities and appearances. I liked the way the author gradually developed the plot. Hutch worked up to the championship game at the end of the book. This book was realistic because all boys’ that play baseball want to win the championship game. I liked the book because it talks about one of the sports that I love to play. I would recommend this book to others because it is exciting and kept my attention throughout the book. Harrison W.

There a new kid on his team that is the same or even better then him. His name is Darryl. He thinks he is a big shot. Darryl never on time for practice. Ever since Keith dad got hurt in baseball.
