Hit and Run Gang #01: New Kid in Town

Steven Kroll, Author Avon Books $3.5 (0p) ISBN 978-0-380-76407-5
Phil Hubbard has just moved into town and wants more than anythng to be a member of the Raymondtown Rockets baseball team. Unfortunately, his tryout is plagued with errors. Persistence, practice and a caring group of new friends help Phil adjust to his new home and earn a place on the team. ``Here's to a brand new season, with Phil Hubbard starting at third base.'' These jubilant words set the stage for the series of books to follow, aimed at beginning readers seeking lively, easy-to-read sports stories. This quick-paced, animated baseball tale features upbeat characters and pointers to improve one's game. Kroll's authentic baseball scenes virtually bring his audience onto the playing field and raise this entry a notch above the many similar series, such as the Alden All Stars and the Never Sink Nine. Ages 6-9. (Mar.)
