New York : Coward-McCann, 1984
is a fifth grader who is always picked last for baseball. This is particularly
awful for Applebaum since his family is baseball crazy. His father spends
times each night working with Applebaum to help him become a better player.
Unfortunately, Applebaum has a learning disability which makes it hard
for him to remember all the things he needs to do and makes him a bit uncoordinated.
When a few classmates decide they want to start a team, they look for a
sponsor. Applebaum asks his grandmother if she will sponsor them. She agrees
and thus guarantees Applebaum a spot on the team. Will Applebaum improve
enough to help the team or will he be a total goof-up?
