Reviews - What do customers think about Baseball Pals (Matt Christopher Sports Classics)?
OK BOOK FOR YOU May 25, 2007
Baseball Pals is written by Matt Christopher and it is about 97 pages and it has short chapters. If you like baseball books and one were there is a kid that wants to play one spot and there is a kid that is a lot better than him at that spot and they are the best of friends. This book is one that you would like if you have a lower reading level. One thing I didn't like was that there wasn't that much detail on the characters, but there is a lot of detail towards the games and what they are thinking in there heads
Another one by Matt Christopher May 18, 2006
The Book of baseball pals is an amazing book. It all starts out about a kid named Jimmie who was the manager of his baseball team. He though he could pitch, but really everyone knew that Paul was better and still didn't admit to it. So then Paul decides to pitch for another team. When the season starts Jimmie's team is really bad because there team has no pitchers. Paul and Jimmie are best friends so they never want to be on different teams, so there are many problems along the way. In this book it shows how sometimes when you're a kid you want to be the pitcher and want to be the best player but that isn't always the right thing. It will teach some kids not to be selfish all the time and know that they always aren't the best player. For the length of the book it had some really good action of sports. If you like sports this would be an awesome book to read. It is a really hard book to put down while reading it. I like the theme of this book and also the plot. That is why I put 4 out of 5 stars on it.
HowI Rate my Baseball Pals. May 17, 2006
This book was a really good book. I especially like how it's a sports novel but also explains life lessons. The story is about two friends that both want to pitch for their baseball team but the team only wants one pitcher, one of the friends is the captain of the team and decides the positions and assigns himself pitcher. The other friend feels left out and they split up. This book has some great morals, 1. Don't single one person out. 2. Let everyone try. 3.realize your friends. By: Dominic, A Sixth Grader from Maine
p.s. Matt Christopher ROCKS!!!

Baseball Pal's Review Nov 18, 2003
I had read the book, "Baseball Pals", the author of the book is the famous sports writer, Matt Christopher. The main character in this story is Jimmie, in the story he was picked as the manager of his baseball team and he wanted to pitch, unfortunately so did his best friend Paul, but he wanted to pitch so Paul quit his team and went to another team. The plot was that Jimmie was being selfish and his friend quit the team, Jimmie also turned out not to be that good of a pitcher. The setting of the story is during present day, it takes place in a city, and the name was not named in the story. The theme of this amazing story is baseball. It also explains to not be selfish, because you can sometimes even lose your best friend. I liked this story that is why I rate it 5 stars; it was a very thorough and well written story. The author had a good beginning, middle and end. The story was about my favorite theme of baseball; also it had a good plot and was an overall good story.
