It a pretty nice book. Though, it kind of sad to the main character that he lost his old version dad. It still have a nice ending and I reccommend to people who is 5th or higher grade to read it. It pretty exciting.

Bryan wants to be a bat boy for the Detroit Tigers because his dad played for the Tigers. I liked the end when he is the bat boy.

Lupica has written another great book!!!! There is a lot of feeling and depth. You get an entirely new perspective not only on baseball/batboys but on life.
