My 6 year old loves this book. We will be reading the others in the series soon. This is his first chapter book. The chapters are short enough for him and the sentences and vocabulary are just right. He loves that he gets to read big kid books and not baby stories now!

I think this story is a great book because talks about a teen kid named David with a struggle at the beginning and well he's in a baseball team  and well at first he's not the very best. Time goes by and he's friend Mark ere he comes to the rescue. Mark's goal was to be able to help David  at the pitch. David is always sitting in the bench because mostly because people get him out. Now does Mark has everything what it takes  to help David out and see him everyday in the pitch hitting home runs.
