Overview

Time for a seventh-inning stretch! The San Francisco Splash is book #7 in our early chapter book mystery series, where each book is set in a different American ballpark!

   Splash! A hit soars over the walls of the San Francisco ballpark on the bay and drops into the water. But then Mike and Kate hear another, much larger splash nearby . . . and this time it's not a baseball. It's a man overboard! And when he's pulled from the water, the old-time ballplayer discovers his World Series ring is gone! Is it at the bottom of the bay? Or was it somehow stolen by a long-ago rival?

   The San Francisco Splash includes several pages of "Dugout Notes," fun facts about San Francisco's recently built ballpark.

Cross Ron Roy's A to Z Mystery series with Matt Christopher's sports books and you get the Ballpark Mysteries: fun, puzzling whodunits aimed at the younger brothers and sisters of John Feinstein's fans.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Myrna Dee Marler
While kayaking in the San Francisco Bay and trying to catch splash balls from nearby Dodgers Stadium, young cousins Mike and Kate witness a man struggling in the water after apparently falling out of a nearby boat. Mike jumps in to save him, and in the process discovers he is a legendary baseball player, Ray Reynolds. Ray discovers that his World Series ring is not on his hand. Mike and Kate take it upon themselves to solve the mystery of the missing ring, questioning potential suspects, and taking in a lot of San Francisco's tourist sites along the way. While the book tells an interesting story, it is also packed with interesting factoids about baseball, San Francisco, and even a few Spanish words. Though the plot is highly improbable, it is entertaining, and in the end Kate and Mike are successful with a splash of danger thrown in. Good for young readers and educational, too. Number seven in the "Ballpark Mysteries" series. Reviewer: Myrna Dee Marler
