Eric Plays Baseball: Opening Day
by Jerry Pia
THE FIRST BOOK IN A NEW SERIES ABOUT YOUTH BASEBALL, Eric Plays Baseball: Opening Day is about eight-year-old Eric’s long-awaited first baseball game of the season. A true-blue baseball lover with big visions about his future, Eric dreams of baseball every night—from hitting the game-winning grand slam to striking out the last batter for the win. And now it’s Opening Day!
After Eric wakes up very early to get ready for his big day, he and his family are off to the fi eld to start the season, hoping for nice hits and a great defense. As Eric’s fellow Bombers go up against the Bluebirds, the game gets even more exciting when—with the Bombers down three to one—the fate of Opening Day is in Eric’s hands as he comes up to bat. Will he hit a grand slam to win the game? Or will the hard-throwing pitcher strike Eric out?
