The Brooklyn Nine A Novel in Nine Innings by Alan Gratz

If you love baseball and want to know more about the history of the game from its very beginnings through the present, you need to read this book.

First of all, it is a novel - almost a collection of short stories. The first inning (story) takes place in 1845, the second, in 1864 during the Civil War. The last inning is set in 2002 in Brooklyn, New York.

I liked the book because of the character development and the love of the game that shines throughout this book, but baseball lovers will also learn about the development of baseball throughout the years.

Excellent book - I'm looking forward to seeing what my students think of it!
