    Deja vu in stereo

    Talk about déjà vu in stereo! On the one hand I¿m reading The Day I Hit a Home Run at Great American Ball Park and on the other I am reliving memories of my sandlot baseball days in junior high on the heavily-treed school yard lot. I had intended to scan the book to see if my nephew would enjoy Paul Mullen¿s book but got so enthralled with my own days on the diamond that I finished the book before reaching for my now-cold coffee. I love the special sandlot rules ¿ into the woods in left field is an out, over Stover¿s fence a home run, into Stover¿s pool a two-run homer. On my school yard ball field there was a large oak tree immediately foul of first-base. If the ball bounced off the tree in fair it was playable otherwise foul. If the ball was hit high into the tree and started ricocheting from left to right on the way down you could make a last minute leap for an out. And we didn¿t play barefoot because stomping down on an acorn could be painful. Mullen¿s colorful descriptive language produced other instant memories ¿ like when he describes his father¿s Old Spice cologne as smelling like ¿vanilla cream coffee.¿ And in this day of wild-eyed hockey moms and fanatic Little League parents it was refreshing to hear Dad whispers to Michael, ¿Don¿t worry son. Whatever happens, you¿re still my boy.¿ What a wonderful story and delightful read. This is a story not only about baseball and youthful dreams but about character and how to live life without regrets. And, oh yes, my nephew enjoyed The Day I hit a Home Run almost as much as I did.

    It¿s all up to Fuji. Michael ¿Fuji¿ Powers, the youngest son in a fairly large family, is the last hope for the Powers family. His father had always dreamed of making it to the major leagues, to actually play at Great American Ball Park. When that didn¿t happen, the task was passed onto his sons. In turn, each of his brothers tried to fulfill that ambition without success. Now, it¿s Fuji¿s turn. In The Day I Hit a Home Run at Great American Ball Park, Fuji gets to live the dream. Not only does he get the call to play for the Withamsville-Tobasco Cardinals but he plays at Great American Ball Park. It¿s a game (and a story) that you won¿t want miss. The Day I Hit a Home Run at Great American Ball Park is a classic story that warms the heart and keeps the dream machine going. Fuji is a great guy. He¿s just an average American boy who is always overlooked that is suddenly trust into the limelight.

    an enticing read

    The smack of the bat hitting the ball is a sound little leaguers and parents alike adore. Watching my boy play ball is one of my favorite things seeing him reading is another. Paul Mullen¿s ¿The Day I Hit a Home Run at Great American Ball Park¿ is a pretty pitch to aim for in both ballparks. Michael ¿Fuji¿ Powers is coming into his own through a summer of baseball, the love of family, and the adventures of childhood. Getting his chance to prove himself on the field is what every ball player deserves and Michael gets his chance to shine. Neighborhood games and a first love, night fishing and selling candy bars are all part of the deal in what turns out to be a well rounded book that middle readers and adults will enjoy. Michael endures the bully of the team, runs many laps to make amends for errors, and gets his shot at fame when the team¿s second baseman gets drafted to another team. Playing at Great American Park was the dream playing well becomes the goal. This endearing tale of America¿s favorite pastime, the importance of friends and family, and growing up just a little, is a great read. The plot runs smoothly and the story is fantastic. There was a bit of confusion in what year the tale takes place, only in reference to popular icons and the manner of speech of the characters. It is as if the author were capturing his own youth in print but putting it into a story of today. Overall, Paul Mullen has done an excellent job of offering an enticing read.
