be torn down and the worst baseball team has to beat the best to save there legendary stadium. Can

they do it? Read the book to find out! 3.Dante del Gato’s house is high up a hill and has a huge,

gigantic fence to get to his house. In side del Gato’s house there is a round kitchen with a stove and a

rugged table with a coffee maker and little cabinets.


The main character is Tom Gallagher. He plays on a baseball team that his dad coaches. He loves

To draw in his Dreamsketcher drawing pad only when he is alone. Tom is 11 years old and has tons of

friends. Frankie is Tom’s best friend. He also plays on the baseball team and likes to be funny.Maria

is a girl that plays on the baseball team also. She kind of acts like she likes Tom when Tom is not

around. Ramon is Tom’s pal that plays on the baseball team. He is a great smart alec, and can speak

Spanish. Rachel is the quiet girl and also is part of the team. She does not take to important of a part

the book. Doc is and 87 year old land keeper. He was the one who declared that there would be the

great game. Dante delGato is a legendary baseball player that agrees to be Toms team’s coach.

He is one of the best coaches. Tom’s dad was the teams head coach until Dante del Gato.

His mom is normal.


The first problem is that Doc is going to sell a huge amount of land and tear

down a legendary baseball field unless Tom and his baseball team beat the

best baseball team. They don’t have a good team and they need a way better

trainer and coach. Can they find one?

The second problem is when Cruz de la Cruz was not at the game to play

baseball and nobody could find him. He was the top hitter on the team.

The third was when Maria the pitcher got a broken ankle and there were no

pinch pitchers. They only have 9 players, so if they lose a player they forfeit

and lose the game.

The forth problem is when Doc dies before the game ends. The stadium

will have to be to be torn down even though……………so Tom has to stop it!

People down in Dillontown don’t agree on much. Not the skateboard laws. Not the

billboard laws. The economy. The ecology. There’s days when they don’t even agree

on which way the wind is blowing. But they agree on this. From old timers in there

overalls on Maine Street, to the seventy-seven keyboard clicking kids down at Scrub Oak

Community School, they’ll each and all tell you. If there wasn’t a kid named Cruz de la

Cruz, somebody would’ve come along and invented him.

And no matter how weird and wild and tall the tale, no one, not even Blackjack Buck himself could’ve cooked up a mind-whacking brain-snapper as wild and woolbacious as what really happened.


Because Cruz de la Cruz, that cyber-vato desperado, not only saved el civismo, the very spirit

of this town, he saved the holy game of Baseball as we know it.
