Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Robert Ramirez

Children Ages 8+ • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Narrator Robert Ramirez is clearly having a good time delivering Ritter's tongue-in-cheek humor and intriguing mix of the Wild West and 1880s vintage baseball in a California gold-mining town. After all, it's pure fun to bring Billy the Kid up to bat and, what's more, have him hit a bullet in this tall tale. A prequel to Ritter's THE BOY WHO SAVED BASEBALL, this book revisits the Dillontown Nine, a team stacked with memorable misfits. Ramirez gives each his due. His warm storyteller's voice makes listeners believe it all really happened. Or could have. Or SHOULD have! This narrator sits tall in the saddle AND hits a home run. M.M.C.
