We're thrilled to have Heather Lang and David Kelly joining us for a baseball-themed reading! Pizza will be served.
In Heather's book, Anybody's Game, Kathryn Johnston wanted to play Little League, but in 1950 an unwritten rule kept girls from trying out. So she cut off her hair and tried out as a boy under the nickname "Tubby." She made the team--and changed Little League Baseball forever. An inspiring and suspenseful story about what it means to want something so badly you'll break the rules to do it--and how breaking the rules can lead to change.

In David's Ballpark Mysteries: Cardinals Caper, It's a special day in St. Louis, and there's a pregame celebration with Clydesdale horses that drive around the edge of the stadium before the game. Mike and Kate get to meet the horses and the Dalmatian that rides along. Then, during the game, they find out the Dalmatian is missing. They rush to investigate and find a ransom note. The criminal will return the dog if they can get one of St. Louis's World Series trophies. Can Mike and Kate catch the crook and rescue the pup?
