Twelve-year-old Nick is a talented pitcher until polio strikes. His speedy recovery and return to baseball--aided by time spent with real-life pitcher Satchel Paige--feel unrealistic. The story, set in the 1930s when Paige and other black ballplayers were barred from Major League teams, smoothly comingles fact and fiction. Baseball fans will recognize several historic players in this readable narrative. (c) Copyright 2012. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
