Ezra Feldman, almost ten, likes baseball more than anything else in the world. But his father cannot understand why his son would rather rot his brains watching men swinging big wooden sticks than read a book or play chess. Can an unwanted car trip, a grumpy old professor, and a surprising chess victory help father and son find a little common groundand convince Ezra's dad that cheering for the national pastime isn't completely off base?

This is my favorite book best i ever read it shows u about a relationship between father and son
I like that it had chess and baseball in it. It had a kid who was almost my age so I could relate to him - but my Dad loves baseball too. The kid in the book, Ezra, also likes the Mets just like me. If you have to do a school report, this is a great book to choose.
I read this book when I was 9,I love baseball,but I think because I am so high above my level,that I thought it was to young for me.If you are in the age range,and like baseball you would like this book.
