    Exelent book

    I liked the book because I like baseball, and this is a good story about it. I liked it when the ship exploded. I like sports books. Matt Christopher is my favorite author. Bobby is in the baseball season when his parents got divorced. He is a really good base runner. His Dad and him started to make him run faster by running bases. Some long haired kids were watchig him. They liked his speed so they called him fox. In the last game of the season he steals home.
