KIRKUS REVIEW

This popular author has written a baseball story of interest to fans, and he has added a special social slant in the manner of John Tunis. Ken, a fielder from no -where, gets on the team by good playing. He has a secret to hide but it doesn't matter until his past catches up with him and threatens to ruin him and his game. It also threatens to undo the work he has done in organizing a network of baseball teams in tough areas. As the story develops it becomes clear that Ken has a special sympathy with these tough kids who often tangle with the law. Unusual story, plenty of intimate ball club play and pages of straight baseball to delight its followers. What games!
