Six Innings by James Preller

In twelve chapters plus one devoted to a postgame wrap-up, Preller relates the nail-biting tension of a Little League championship game between Earl Grubb's Pool Supplies and Northeast Gas and Electric with the play-by-play handled by a young former player sidelined by bone cancer.  Inning by inning, as each player comes up to bat, or faces a challenge in the field, or waits impatiently in the on-deck circle, the reader learns about the personality, talents and emotions at play in his mind and heart.  Decisions made by coaches, lucky and unlucky breaks, and injuries suffered by players all play an important part in determining the outcome of the game.  This is an excellent read for young baseball fans ages 9 - 13.
