Jack and Annie learn more than the basics of baseball from master player Jackie Robinson when they travel back to 1947 Brooklyn, where they work as batboys in Robinson's historic first Dodgers game. Sports history and the effects of racism are woven into this latest fast-paced and accessible installment in the popular series; black-and-white illustrations are included throughout.
