Description

These fun, illustrated early chapter books feature the adventures and misadventures of the Pine City Porcupines, a hapless baseball farm team, and their two batboys: Chad, an avid baseball fan with a huge baseball card collection, and Dylan, who doesn t know a thing about the sport. The fictional series has a unique twist: Chad solves problems by using information from Topps cards of real figures from modern baseball history. Teddy Bear Larrabee, a slugger on the Pine City Porcupines, gets his 823rd base hit on his birthday, August 23 and it s a home run! The Bear is a big believer in the power of numbers, so he asks Pines batboy Chad to retrieve the ball from the stands. There s only one problem: the crabby fan in the ballpark who caught it. Chad really wants to keep the Bear happy and slugging, so he s just got to figure out what the fan would be willing to trade for that 823 ball."
