Review:
Three siblings are part of an itinerant baseball team at the turn of the 20th century, a time when batters were called "strikers" and fans were "cranks" and "rooters." The history of the game, and of a time gone by are the best part of authors Phil Bildner and Loren Long's tale, read by Josh Hamilton. When strange and ghostly things happen out on the field, they have something to do with the siblings' late dad and a beat-up old baseball with mysterious properties. Readers and listeners have to wait, though, for the next book in the series to find out more.
