Readers can read the lyrics to the perennial baseball anthem, while listening to a tinny instrumental recording that plays when the book opens. Scenes alternate between mid-action plays on the field and bright depictions of a family cheering in the stadium along with other eager fans. The musical component and bright, enthusiastic images should help get young readers geared up for the season. Ages 2–5. (Mar.)
