KIRKUS REVIEW

More Junior High sports by the author of Stretch Smith Makes a Basket and Squeeze Play -- this time baseball, with a double play on character building. Joe Wicklon was sure that he had the stuff to make a pitcher, and when the junior baseball team of the Bedloe Post of the American Legion was made up, he was pleased when Coach Gedlon hinted he might pitch in the opening game. But Joe's pitching career is a rocky road due to the needling of Pug Fraser who had a heavy grudge against Joe. Poise, self-confidence and a sporting attitude come through hard knocks. Heavy on nobility but excellent baseball with solid tips for young players.
