More About This Title Down for the Count


Junior was the shortest kid on his neighborhood baseball team. He didn’t mind being short—he adjusted his stance and stood tall when he was batting so he could get a piece of the ball. And man, could he hit! But when Junior made the traveling baseball team, the coach wanted him to use his height “just to get on base.” He was supposed to wait for the count to do the work. No hitting for him. That wasn’t the kind of baseball Junior wanted to play, even if it meant his dad was paying more attention to him. Can Junior find a way to connect with his dad and play the fun version of baseball again? Zach Riley brings the action and emotion of baseball to young readers with Down for the Count.
