Description

“Reader Garcia succeeds mightily in reaching the young YA audience for which this is written. But this is also a wholesome, entertaining family audio.” Kliatt

How many fourteen-year-old boys would turn down an offer of time travel to any baseball game in history? Certainly not die-hard New York Yankees fan, Matt Collier. Accompanied by the Time Keeper, guardian of Time throughout the universe, Matt becomes the batboy for his beloved team and tries to change the outcome of the 1960 World Series, the first ever to end with a homerun.
