School Library Connection - Nick Petrosino, District Library Coordinator, Ravena School District, OH

"With likable characters, short chapters, and a tale chock full of sports nostalgia, this series should attract sports fans and history buffs alike. Generously spaced text and abundant white space on the pages make for an easy read. Black and white illustrations enhance the story by putting faces to the main characters while the Glossary and Timeless Facts sections provide relevant, factual information pertaining to the historical events and people. Recommended." - School Library Connection
