Sylvester is a kid who loves baseball but is not that good at it. He doesn't want to sign up for his team, but that all changes when he meets someone named Mr.Baruth. Mr. Baruth really is Babe Ruth. Babe Ruth practices with Sylvester every day. He teaches him how to hit and how to catch. Sylvester joins the team. Every game he hits a homerun. The moral of the story is practice makes perfect.

Do you like baseball, because if you do you would like this book called The Kid Who Only Hit Homers. This book is about a kid, named Sylvester who was not very good at baseball. He could not even make his team, the Red Birds. But then he met a man at the Red Birds' practice. He sometimes watches the Red Birds practice and one day he met Mr. Baruth. Will Sylvester get better? If you like this book review is good to your nearest book store or library. My name is Brooks an I think you should read this books because it's about baseball and the author did a great job of making it interesting.
Great for just starting out.  Jul 15, 2005
I grew up reading Matt Christopher books and now at the age of 20 I owe my great interest in baseball literature to him and his books. They are great for kids to get into reading about the sports they love to play and they teach great life and sport lessons espicially about humility. There will always be a place in my heart for his literature and this is probably his best book on baseball. Highly reccomended.
