Baseball Books from Penguin Young Readers:
|"ALL STAR" by Jane Yolen and illustrated

Wagner and the most famous baseball card ever. It is about
the true grit of one of the greatest shortstops of all time
and his card. Perfect for ages 6-8. TRUE GRIT.
"NO EASY WAY" is the story of Ted Williams and the 1941
season, the last one any player ever hit .400. Fred Bowen

loving look at learning to play baseball. Corduroy and Blue
