To start with, you need to know that I love baseball even though I am not very good at it. Next, you should know that this is my real name - Sylvester Coddmyer III - honestly. Even though I went to the team try-outs and gave it my best, it seemed best not to sign up. Until I met George Baruth. He caught up with me after practice and offered to help me with my hitting and catching. Mr. Baruth knew a lot and I learned quick, quick enough to get on the team. Mr. Baruth taught me so well that everyone in town was soon talking about me and the home runs I was hitting. They all wanted to know how I got so good.

Commenter: Alan, grade 2
Mr. Baruth acts and plays like Babe Ruth. Interesting. And maybe a little dangerous? Read the rest of the series and you'll find out what I mean by 'dangerous'. (The series is only four books, so, don't worry.)
