Now leading off the line-up—book #1 in a brand-new early chapter book mystery series where each book is set in a different American ballpark!
Thanks to Kate’s mom, a sports reporter, cousins Mike Walsh and Kate Hopkins have tickets to the Red Sox game and All Access passes to Fenway Park. But as they’re watching batting practice before the game, the lucky bat of Red Sox star slugger Big D is stolen . . . right in front of dozens of people. Without the bat, Big D can’t seem to hit a thing. Can Kate and Mike figure out who pinched the bat before Big D and the Sox chalk up a loss?
The Fenway Foul-Up includes a fun fact page about Boston’s Fenway Park.
Cross Ron Roy’s mystery series with Matt Christopher’s sports books and you get the Ballpark Mysteries: fun, puzzling whodunnits aimed right at beginning readers.
