Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Introduce young readers to history through the stories of both real and fictionalized people. By focusing on a single important episode that describes a historical event, these books engage readers' interests and imaginations. Written in a story format, each account relates events that really happened, often followed by a brief summary of the historical event to further explain the significance it had on history.

Synopsis:

Jackie Mitchell has always wanted to be a great pitcher, and she finally has the chance to become one! In 1931, a minor-league baseball team, the Lookouts of Tennessee, signed a contract with 17-year-old Jackie. In her first game, the Lookouts were up to bat against the indomitable New York Yankees. Does Jackie stand a chance against two of the greatest home-run hitters of all time — Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig? She finds out in the very first inning. Author Jean L. S. Patrick and illustrator Jeni Reeves capture the spirit and tenacity of Jackie as they recount the true story of her first, and last, game as a minor-league pitcher.
