Overview

Jack and Larry is the heartwarming story of a man, a dog, and a baseball team. Leadoff batter for the Cleveland American League team from 1910-22, Jack Graney was loved for many reasons, not least among them the fact that he owned Larry, bull terrier mascot of the woebegone, 102-losses, 48-games-out team that struggled to prove itself worthy.

Larry, too, was loved, not only by the Cleveland fans, but by porters, bellhops, ship captains and trolly car conductors in all American League cities and in Canada. Loyal, sensitive, intelligent, Larry was more than a mascot - he was part of the team.

Jack and Larry is a story about the pursuit of the pennant, a story of devotion, commitment, and persistence, illustrating what it means to be major league.

For ages 10 to adult.

    Superbly written; an easy to follow heart-warming story! A perfect read for preteens to adults.

    Got the book and the next morning before work opened it to skim through a few pages. I was half hour late to work and had finished about 1/3 of the book. This is a truly a light-hearted, inspirational, and educational read. The writting style is so unique it is almost poetic with an extremely easy flow. (Made me want to run out and buy season tickets, and I don't usually watch baseball)!
