The Bat Boy and His Violin
By Gavin Curtis
Illustrated by E.B. Lewis 
Paperback
Age 4-8 years

Reginald loves to create beautiful music on his violin. But Papa, manager of the Dukes, the worst team in the Negro National League, needs a bat boy, not a "fiddler," and traveling with the Dukes doesn't leave Reginald much time for practicing.

Soon the Dukes' dugout is filled with Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach -- and the bleachers are filled with the sound of the Dukes' bats. Has Reginald's violin changed the Dukes' luck -- and can his music pull off a miracle victory against the powerful Monarchs?

Gavin Curtis's beautifully told story of family ties and team spirit and E. B. Lewis's lush watercolor paintings capture a very special period in history.

Have never heard of it before, price, title, brief description were enough to sell me. My boys boys played a lot of baseball in their youth...and of course I am a music person...taught for about 16 years, just retired.
