"BASEBALL is the perfect balance of salty and sweet. You love this kid... He's got perspective. He's got style. If you read this book and you don't hear that kid talking right to you, you're not listening. 'Cause he's right there, right in your ear, the whole time......You can spot the influence of Salinger, maybe, or early Stephen King...Reading BASEBALL, I sorely missed the 1950s. And I was born in '71. So author Francis Bennett is either a word magician, or the creator of the time machine. But whatever it is Bennett did to create BASEBALL, I hope he does it again!" ~ YoTeach
"This story brought me back to my childhood and all the crazy ideas we had. Its a story of friendship, sibling love and loss. A quick read to remind you how quickly life can change, that it's okay to dream, and how by changing your perspective you can enjoy each moment of the journey. I highly recommend.~ Riley's Mom
"Humorous and sentimental, devastating and hopeful...Impressive power." ~Kirkus Reviews
