Cal Ripken, Jr.'s All-Stars Squeeze Play PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Cal Ripken, Jr.'s All-Stars Squeeze Play free pdf Corey Maduro should be thrilled about the Orioles going to the big Grand Slam Tournament. But whenever he thinks about playing, he feels sick. For one thing, he's in a monster hitting slump, which shows no signs of ending. Then there's Katelyn Moss, who thinks she deserves Corey's center field job and tries to outdo him at everything. But Corey's biggest problem is his dad, who turns into a howling, wild-eyed maniac at his son's games. Joe Maduro ridicules the other team, gets in shouting matches with parents, and screams at the umps when calls don't go the Orioles' way. It's so embarrassing Corey wants to crawl into a hole-except Katelyn would probably dig a better hole and make him feel worse. With "Squeeze Play," the best-selling team behind "Hothead," "Super Slugger," and "Wild Pitch" delivers another funny and action-packed home run. PRAISE FOR HOTHEAD ." . . just the ticket for readers who've worked their way through Dan Gutman and Matt Christopher but are still a little shy of Matt de la Pe a and Carl Deuker. "--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Written with Ripken's obvious knowledge of the game, Conor's story rings true, with plenty of good baseball action. If Conor's not always in good spirits, the novel is, with likable characters, lively baseball action and the usual dreams of playing in the big leagues-in Conor's case, at Camden Yards. Ripken and Cowherd, like Conor and his Babe Ruth League Orioles, make a winning team. "--Kirkus
