I got an Al Kaline glove and nobody gave me that, or my bat either. We taught her how jzke do that. L ast year in the Arborville ten-year-old league we beat the McLeod Builders without much trouble. League rules say you can play with eight guys but not with seven.

Timothy rated it it was amazing Jul 16, To keep me on jxke toes. Sadie rated it it was amazing Oct 03, Sometimes I get tired of cooking myself hamburgers and hot dogs. His writing has been described as “making space travel seem as ordinary as piling in the family wagon for a jaunt to McDonald’s”.

I never knew why Slote stopped writing for two years inafter I had already devoured everything, then made his triumphant return in with … a tennis book? If he was also talking for Mrs. During my peak Slote years — second grade through fifth grade, basically — I only knew that Slote lived in Michigan, jke doubled as the locale for his sports books. None of our guys go to camp. You get them scared of you, and you pull your own team together.

We were eleven years old. I clicked on the link. This was one of the few children’s sports books featuring an African-American lead character, and it did not disappoint.

Jake by Alfred Slote

Jun 26, Maurice Jr. I was playing the position like a softball third baseman in a fast pitch game. Rachel marked it as to-read Nov 06, Lists with This Book. William Boyle marked it as to-read Oct 27, They were a well-trained team, you could see that right away, and much improved over last year. It smoked in for a strike. Matt Christopher never could have written that one.


The next kid up was Larry Esch who was a lefty and a drag-bunted all the time. Most teams carry fifteen or sixteen players because when summer vacation starts, kids go to camp. McLeod got red in the face.

Paul rated it it was amazing Jul 06, However, it reminded me that old-favorite authors may’ve had books that slipped through. I never knew my father who gave me my last name, and my mother left two years ago to visit down south and never came back.

It led me to some other very good books he wrote.

Maybe it took 35 years, but I finally met someone else who loved Slote and resented Matt Christopher, too. McLeod, who was crossing the diamond, thought I was sassing him again. There was no way to know when the next Slote book was coming. It’s too bad it isn’t ajke widely available, but who knows.

We were loose now. But Slote is very good at pacing sports stories and having his young protagonists feel real.
