Item description for Look Who's Playing First Base by Matt Christopher...

LOOK WHO'S PLAYING FIRST BASE Will Mike stand up to his teammates to defend his friend? When the Checkmates need a new first baseman, Mike Hagin's new friend, Yuri, seems like a logical choice. But when Yuri starts flubbing plays and the team's star player threatens to quit as a result, Mike is not sure Yuri is such a good choice after all-for a teammate or for a friend. It appears as if Mike will have to choose between his friendship with Yuri and his loyalty to the team-or is there another solution?

Khadijah Embry Review  Sep 28, 2007
I'm Khadijah Embry from Chattahoochee Middle/High School. This book is about this boy name Mike and this boy Art was talking anf they was trying to figure out who that new boy was. It was 1 day he was walking home from school and he saw him on the side of the apartment building throwing the baseball against the wall, then he threw it and when it came back it was a little over his head then went over in the neighborhood pool. That is where Mike was at when he was walking and he saw it coming but by time he got over there it had got in the pool water. Then was trying to find something to get it out and Mike was like there got to be something around here to get it out with. Then they started talking they was telling each other about there self. Then Mike had ask him to be on the baseball team called the Checkmates so he can play first base. Then it was there first day he showed up late and everybody was mad. He finally showed up then Mike was like where you been at and he said I went grocery shopping with my mom and he was like sorry that i was running late. Then it was time for the game and Coach Terko was calling out the battign order then it had got to Yuri turn. The when he was hitting the ball and everyone was like that he couldn't hit for nothing. Then Mike had felt bad baecause he didn't want to tell Yuri that he need to quit because he did not kno how to play then toward the end of the book they had worked everything out with Yuri and him playing first base. They had helped him by telling him what to do and they had worked evry thing out with him and they had won there last game by working things out with Yuri then once they won the game everybody went out to the pool out at where Yuri and Mike live out in the apartments. I think it was a good book I do recommend it to someone else. IF YOU READ IT I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT
 
Look Who's Playing First Base review  Jan 9, 2004
Look Who's Playing First Base By Matt Christopher

Look Who's Playing First Base is a great book. I liked that Yuri was from Russia. I also liked that Don and Mike would argue about how good Yuri was at baseball when he didn't know they were arguing. I like this book better than Center Court Sting but not as well as The Comeback Challenge. I recommend this book to sport players and people who like to read.

My review
Reviewer: A 10-year old reader from Hill AFB UT. USA
The book I read was "Look whose playing first base". Have you ever moved from another country to the USA? Yuri has. Yuri is a boy from Russia who comes to America and meets a boy named Mike. When Mike met Yuri, he was tossing a ball against a wall and Mike said hey what sup and asked Yuri if he would like to play first base man on there team. Because their last first base man moved away. Their teams name is the checkmates. Yuri was left-handed and left-handed players are best at first base. Yuri was not a very good player at first. The only reason he got to stay on the team is because of his bat and he always hits home runs. Don the teams catcher threatened to quit and so he did but if you want find out if he comes back and if they win their last game.
Something special. This book teaches you about sportsmanship and that winning is not everything also that you should never leave your real friends for dumb reasons
I think you should read this book because of the voluble lessons within the book. There are a lot of the other matt Christopher books to read that are full of exiting and touching stories.

My review  Dec 4, 2001
The book I did was Look whos playing first base. Have ever moved from another country to the USA? Yuri has. Yuri is a boy from Russiu and ther he meets a boy named Mike and when he met Yuri he was tossing a ball against a wall and Mike said hey whatsup and asked yuri if he would like to play first base man on there team couse the last first base man moved away. There teams name is the checkmates.and Yuri was left handed and left handes are best at first base.And then yuri turned out to benot to good.
The only reason he got to stay on the team is becouse of his bat and he always hits home runs. and Don the teams catcher threatend to quit and so he did but if you want find out if he comes back and if they win there last game.

Something speciel is that it teaches you about sportsmanship and that winning is not everything also that you should never leave your real frends.

You sould read this book and alot of the other matt christofer books couase they are exiting and touching.
