Infield Hit Book Review ¿He heard the sharp crack of the bat. Warner had connected.¿ That was an exciting part from the book ¿Infield Hit¿. In the book the main character Hal is the son of a retired baseball star and has just moved to the area. The coach of the baseball team that Hal is on moves him to play second base. The old second baseman (Warner) quit and got mad at Hal because he thought it was favoritism that he got moved. Warner eventually came back. I thought this was a good book but not a great book that I do recommend. One reason I thought the book was good was that it was exciting. One exciting part happened when Warner hit a homerun in the first inning of the first game. It put their team the Gunners ahead early in the game. Another exciting part happened when Hal beat out a bunt. It was exciting because there was a close play at first. When Hal tricked his teammate during a scrimmage by fake bunting and then hitting one over the third baseman¿s head it was exciting. I thought the book was interesting. Hal didn¿t like to be popular and I thought that was interesting. When Hal was moved from third to second it was interesting he took it so easy. Another interesting thing is that Hal¿s coach used to be a MLB shortstop and knew Hal¿s dad. My last main reason for liking the book is that I like the play by play description. One example is in one game, when the Gunners score a lot of runs, the author does a good job describing each pitch, hit, and play. On one play the shortstop makes a diving stop and it is described well. Also in one part the Gunners get into a bases loaded jam the author does a good job of describing the players talking to the pitcher. Overall this was a good but not great book. I do recommend it. It was exciting and fairly interesting but was not the best baseball book I¿ve read. B.HammWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
