Über diesen Titel
In Home Run Hero, the second book in Dean Hughes's popular Scrappers series, Wilson Love is certainly "the Man." His long ball promises to make him stand out as the Scrappers' best slugger -- when he connects, that is. As Coach Carlton points out, Wilson misses as many as he hits. But when the coach helps him work on a new stance and swing, things get even worse. When he comes to bat, his arms and legs feel all wrong. He couldn't hit the ball if someone held it right up in front of him. The coach might say his swing is better, but what good is that if he still strikes out all the time?
While some of the team side with the coach, others tell him to swing the back the way he wants to, to be himself. Soon Wilson feels caught in a tug-of-war, until he finally realizes that who he is and how he plays is his decision to make.
Each book in Dean Hughes's Scrappers series focuses on a different member of this unseasoned but determined baseball squad. In one summerlong season, each player learns something about him or herself and what it is that defines a team.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6The second installment in the series finds the Scrappers frustrated by the number of games they have lost. Wilson, the catcher, wants everyone to work together, but then he develops a batting problem and becomes more concerned with his own difficulty than with his teams lack of camaraderie. After the players struggle through losses and some pretty heated arguments, morale improves and Wilson becomes aware that he is the leader, both on and off the field. The plot and characterizations are realistic and there is lots of baseball action. Once again, Hughes portrays the equality of the sexes on the field. Although this title can stand alone, children may want to read the first title to discover how the team came to be.Barb Lawler, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
