Overview

Rivals (Baseball Great Series #2) by Tim Green

Cooperstown! Josh is thrilled when all his hard training pays off in a big way and his team, the Titans, makes it to a national tournament in Cooperstown, home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. More is on the line for Josh than just a trophy. Winning would mean everything to his dad—now Josh's coach. Winning could mean a major endorsement deal for the Titans and the attention of big league scouts!

After a dirty play and a brutal injury threaten to sideline Josh, he spies suspicious activity at the tournament. He tries to tell his good friend Jaden about what he's seen, but she's too busy spending time with the L.A. Comets' star player, Mickey Mullen Jr., to want to get involved. Jaden says she's doing research for the newspaper . . . but is she? Now Josh has a rival—both on the field and off—as he swings for the fences in a game that quickly becomes more dangerous.

New York Times bestselling author Tim Green delivers a hard-hitting look at what some teams will do to win in this gripping companion to Baseball Great.

Tim Green, for many years a star defensive end with the Atlanta Falcons, is a man of many talents. He's the author of such gripping books for adults as the New York Times bestselling The Dark Side of the Game and American Outrage. Tim graduated covaledictorian from Syracuse University and was a first-round draft pick. He later earned his law degree with honors, and he has also worked as an NFL commentator for FOX Sports and NPR.

His first book for young readers, Football Genius, inspired in part by his players and his own kids, became a New York Times bestseller and was followed by Football Hero, Football Champ, The Big Time, and Deep Zone. He drew on his experiences playing and coaching Little League for Rivals and Pinch Hit and two more New York Times bestsellers: Baseball Great and Best of the Best.

Bestselling author Jon Scieszka called Tim Green's Unstoppable, a book about a boy's struggle with cancer that debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, "Absolutely heroic. And something every guy should read."

Tim Green lives with his wife, Illyssa, and their five children in upstate New York.

I just finished Rivals by Tim Green. My favorite character was Josh. I liked Josh the most because Josh really loved baseball, as I do. He also didn't try to be the whole team which was what I liked the most about him. I could relate to Josh obviously because we both play and love the sport of baseball. I did enjoy this book because I love sport stories. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes baseball. So, all my friends would probably like this book. The main characters were Josh, Benjii, Jaden, and Mickey Mullen Jr. Josh ran into the problem of being hit in the eye by a pitch. His eye ended up swelling up and he got a metal plate placed in his cheek bone. Benjii ran into having follow Josh everywhere he went, whether he wanted to go or not. Finally, Jaden dated Mickey Mullen Jr., her best friends' enemy, for a week. Josh and Benjii didn't like Mickey because he was the opposing pitcher for the championship game. I really did like this book and would read it a couple more times. I do recommend this book to anyone who is reading this review.
