It's Chad's first spring as a batboy, and the Pine City Porcupines are hot-until they come up against the league-leading Heron Lake Humdingers.
Now Chad's got a whole lineup of problems: his favorite player, shortstop Mike Stammer, thinks he's jinxed; Dylan, the other batboy, doesn't even like baseball; there's a goofy new porcupine mascot on the field; plus, Chad has to fill in as batboy for the Herons.
It's a good thing there's something in the cards-his baseball cards, that is-that can help Chad sort it all out. Praise for A Topps League Story: Jinxed"This book will be an obvious choice for sports enthusiasts, as well as middle grade readers and struggling boy readers.
Refreshingly, though, Scaletta has created a baseball enthusiast protagonist who has characteristics that all readers can relate to."--Library Media Connection
