Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tim Green

Children Ages 8+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Peanuts, popcorn, Cracker Jack . . . performance-enhancing supplements, helicopter parents, win-at-all-cost coaches. Welcome to baseball in the twenty-first century! Author and narrator Tim Green smacks one out of the park with his portrayal of Josh, a gifted middle school baseball player who is faced with painfully intense pressures that make him question the game that he was born to play. Listeners learn how adults can, through egotism, selfishness, and greed, skew a child's fascination for a simple game. As narrator, Tim Green breathes life and depth into the characters of this story, leaving an indelible impression. J.P.D.
