Why sacrifice baseball for Passover?
Danny's mother wants him to miss the season opener, even though he's the best pitcher on the team - just because game day happens to be Passover. Like baseball legend Sandy Koufax, Danny has to choose between loyalty to his team and loyalty to his family and faith. In this absorbing novel, acclaimed author Steven Schnur delivers both riveting psychological conflict and great baseball action that will hook readers to the final inning. Ages 10 up. Grades 5 up.
