KIRKUS REVIEW

Kerby Maxwell's Panthers are still basically a baseball team, and when they stake their clubhouse on the outcome of a street hockey match, it's in hopes of winning three new team members with the promising monikers of Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Bob Gibson Whitford. With a little help from Mrs. Graymalkin's chemistry set and skinny Louie Landowski, the Panthers manage to end up right where they started, but then this is for a crowd that appreciates ""lots of scoring and plenty of invigorating arguments"" more than the final score. A rematch.
