Description

Author-illustrator Matt Tavares hits the ball out of the park with a luminously illustrated tale about the joy of baseball, generational bonds, and the immutable power of dreams.

Oliver Hall loves baseball. He loves the ritual of helping out in his grandfather's store, Hall's Nostalgia, and he loves listening to Grandpa Hall's innumerable baseball stories. But his grandfather has kept one very special story a secret: his own.

When Oliver discovers a Chicago Cubs' uniform in Grandpa Hall's baseball memorabilia store, he has many questions. Did Grandpa once play for the team? Grandpa tells Oliver the story behind the uniform, and in doing so, a story about loving, losing, and loving again, a sport that would always be a part of him.

With stunning black-and-white and sepia-tone illustrations and a heartwarming narrative, Matt Tavares portrays one man's lifelong love of the game, and the enduring legacy he passes on to his grandchild.

"The text masterfully weaves together tradition, perseverance, loyalty, and family lore, and the result will enchant baseball fans young and old." — School Library Journal
