I liked this book, especially Carrilho's unique illustrations and the voice that Jonah Winter gives the narrator. Reading it to myself, I felt like a long-time Dodger fan was telling me the story. The note at the back about the subjective nature of baseball statistics was also interesting and appropriate.

This book definitely gets the award for best cover. I was reading it at my desk, and it seemed like half the kids who approached said something about the holographic cover. The muddy faces of the baseball players are a little less cool, but they are definitely striking. The story is easy to read, and baseball fans will appreciate the added statistics.
