It's all in the catcher's mask. Rudy is having a hard time catching baseballs behind home plate. He attributes his failures to an old catcher's mask. But when he gets another one at a yard sale (garage sale), and thinking by the initials labeled inside, Y.B., for Yogi Bera, Hall of Fame, New York Yankee catcher, his luck begins to change. Wow! I wish I were so lucky.
Once again, Matt Christopher, gives kids of all ages an exciting baseball story with lots of play-by-play action. I love to watch a baseball player scramble for a bunt, or watch a fast ball travel around the infield. It would be hard for me to put this book down until I read the last page.
Yes! Luck is suddenly on Rudy's side. My grandson loves this baseball story. I strongly recommend it for all kids, give it five stars, and I'm Marvin P. Ferguson, author of BOYS ON THE GOLD COAST.
