    Students will like the art. I am not sure how the story of video gamer turned star athlete will go over.

    There are two boys on a baseball team who do not get along. They get into trouble for fighting and are asked to leave the team and not return until they can work together. They reluctantly work together and through video game analogies bond and improve as baseball players and become friends.

    This was my other graphic novel. Text-to-self: This book grabbed my attention because of the title with “baseball.” For me, this graphic novel reminded me of when I first tried out for a select softball team. Unlike Jared, the main character, I had played softball before. It was neat to read this book and connect in the sense that we were both pitchers for our teams as well. Text-to-text: This book reminded me of Pete the Cat: Play Ball! simply for the fact that they are both about baseball. Also This was my other graphic novel.

Text-to-text: This book reminded me of Pete the Cat: Play Ball! simply for the fact that they are both about baseball. Also, I think that it made me think of this book because both characters are not necessarily trained and skilled at baseball. Jared started playing the sport because he lost a bet and Pete wanted to show off how cool he was. Text-to-world: The events in this story are similar to some that children might experience in real life. Children might experience trying out for a sports team for the first time like Jared did. They might also have the connection to Jared and his love for videogames as well.

    "Anyone who says video games rot your brain, well...you tell 'em I know better. They're the reason I became a starter!" A graphic novel about a boy who found confidence on the baseball field because of his video game prowess. The story involves some middle school bullying and some ups and downs on the ballfield. This is a simple story; a quick read. Nothing flashy but it's a nice book about baseball and struggling through the middle school years.
