by | Read by Cal Ripken, Jr.

Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Cal Ripkin, Jr., is an author who excels at reading his own work. The story gives inspiration to American families today who are facing financial difficulties. Young Connor Sullivan plays Babe Ruth baseball—and loves it. He's an outstanding athlete who isn't cocky and usually keeps his cool. However, after his dad loses his job and life at home becomes trying, Connor begins to lose his temper. As narrator, Ripkin captures the family, team, manager, and Connor himself as he tries to cope with the complications that follow his meltdowns. In addition, there’s a glimpse of first love between Connor and a girl, also well rendered, who cheers him on. A fascinating interview with Ripkin concludes this enjoyable book.
