    Do you like baseball? I do and I loved reading the Baseball Genius by Tim Green and Derek Jeter A famous baseball player James “JY” Yager needs help He gets help from an unlikely 12 year old boy named Jalen DeLuca The author does a great job using the literary element of conflict The conflict was exciting to follow and when problems popped up it was fun to follow the characters An example is when Jalen gets caught stealing ball from JY’s backyard Another conflict is when JY has to show his boss that he is not too old to play JY uses Jalen’s magic ability to see what the pitch will be and tell the batter JY JY batting average goes way up Jalen who was stealing the balls so he could play on his traveling team The different conflict kept these two characters connected in the book The books kept me on my toesAnother element the author does a good job with is resolution I like a good ending just like the next person One example is when Jalen helped JY hit 1000 in all of 3 games so that he could keep playing That is really nice batting average In another example JY did a little favor for Jalen and his dad by tweeting about their diner so people would go and eat there This was helpful because it helped his dad business that was in trouble He also paid for Jalen’s tournament team fees so Jalen could play Jalen can now play on his team without worrying if he will have enough money to play It is nice to read about someone getting another chance at their dreamsIf you like play baseball watch baseball or eating baseball snacks you will love this book Baseball Genius is a great book It reads uickly but you are kept guessing what will happen next I love playing baseball and know alot about the game It was fun to read about a sport I know alot about and enjoy playing Play Ball

    The book that I am reading is Baseball Genius The author of this book is Tim Green and with Derek Jeter This book is read for 4 8th graders This book is about a kid named Jalen and he likes baseball he wants to join a baseball league But Jalen does not have enough money to pay for the team But baseball superstar James Yager is having a rough reason and Jalen helps him with his ability to guess pitches Jalen is a young boy who likes baseball But he lives with his dad and he works at a diner He works all day and night and works by himself He has a friend named Cat She lives by a baseball superstar names James Yager Jalen helps him by predicting the pitches from pro players So what I learned from this book that anyone can do anything if they work hard enough to that goalI loved this book It was a easy read and it was about sports I think that this book would be for people who enjoy baseball for like a hard story behind things This story was sometimes predictable but most of the times the events caught me by surprise I think my favorite part was when he was running away from the person in James Yager’s yard and he got caught and his friend Cats busted him out of the shed This is my review on the Baseball Genius

    E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineJalen would love to be on a travel baseball team but he doesn't have the money to join He and his Cat decide they will break into her neighbor James Yaeger's yard and steal his baseballs which he sells because he is famous and people will give him a lot of money for the balls that he can donate to charity They get caught but manage to escape Unfortunately Cat's mom invites Yaeger to her birthday dinner and he recognizes Jalen Yaeger is in danger of being fired after an injury but Jalen thinks he can help Jalen has the crazy ability to be able to tell what pitch is going to be thrown and Yaeger agrees that Jalen can help There are other things going on in Jalen's life his father works very hard to keep the Starline Diner running but times are hard Yaeger agrees to tweet about the food there to help out but after a disastrous fire things are even dicier Can Jalen manage to help Yaeger and his father? And what will happen to his own baseball career?Strengths Perfectly fine story I liked Jalen's father and Cat was a strong character Good sense of place enough baseball to keep fans happy fast paced story Weaknesses Confused as to this partnership Green writes plenty of baseball stories on his own It read much like a Green story than like Jeter's The Contract which is much message heavyWhat I really think I'll buy although I wish it were about football Baseball players seem academically inclined and write books Green's football titles are always popular

    The book Baseball Genius by Tim Green is about a kid Jalen DeLuca who loves baseball Jalen wants nothing than to play on the the summer travel team the Rockets Unfortunately his dad is not able to pay for the registration fees reuired by the team His best friend Cat is neighbors with the Yankees star second baseman James Yager Jalen decides to sneak into Yager's backyard and steal some of his baseballs from the batting cage which he can then use to sell and pay for the registration fees Jalen gets caught in the act and has to make a deal with Yager to use Jalen's talent of predicting pitches to help Yager out of his slump in exchange for not turning him in I really liked this book because I love baseball and it's a fairly easy and relaxing read I would definitely recommend this book to a friend who is into sports books

    The book that I just got done reading was Baseball Genius by Tim Green The lexile level is 750L Jalen Deluca wants to play baseball this summer He is a baseball genius because he can tell what pitches the pitcher is gonna throw before they even throw it When someone who is in big trouble by the Yankee's Jalen helps him out to make him go four for four so he can still play for the Yankee's Which Jalen didJalen loved to watch and play baseball His dad owns a diner His mom ran away so Jalen never really knew what and who his mom was Jalen loves to play baseball He has two bestfriends Daniel and Cat They do a lot of stuff together School got out and Jalen wanted to play summer league baseball But he didn't have the money for it So there was a famous baseball player that lived near his bestfriend Cat He has his own batting cage in his backyard For every ball he hits he signs it and sells them to donate money to charity Jalen had this devious plan to go steal some and he did so He sold them but didn't get enough money to join the team So when this baseball player James Yager found out who stole them He was going to turn him in but learned why Jalen stole them So he decided to help him He gave him the rest of them money for it Later in the story Jalen tells James that he can read pitches before the pitcher even throws them So James is in trouble with the Yankees manager so he thought he would have Jalen help him out so he could stay on the Yankees Jalen helped him out to do so But later in the story Jalen's dads diner had a kitchen fire and he didn't have the money to repair it but James thought he would help out and pay to fix it So he did and Jalen's dad was back in business On the final game where Jalen was helping out James he got in trouble with the security and was help captive until the game was over but he had Cats phone and facetimed her so he could still help James win the game to stay with the Yankees and so he did that The Yankees won and Jalen could be free nowI loved the book but it was a bit of a longer book to read and took time but it was so good that I didn't even realize it The book at some points you might get lost but you won't be completly lost The book was a little bit of a harder level but not to hard to read Well believing that someone could read a pitch before the pitcher even threw the ball isn't very believable The ending made complete sense to me because I could just understand it by reading the whole book My favorite part was when Jalen made James win the last game that Jalen needed to be there I didn't really make connections throughout the whole book Tim Green is a really good author He does write longer books but they are very enjoyable People who like baseball would like this book Like I said before it is a bit longer though

    Jalen knew you had to be at the right place at the right time in sports and in life tooJalen needs 900 in order to play on the AAU summer baseball team the Rockets If he doesn't play for this team on the bigger field he's sure he'll fall too far behind in his skills to make it to the majors one day Unfortunately that kind of money is difficult for his father to make His father the owner of the Silver Liner Diner works hard and is a wonderful cook but business isn't greatJalen's favorite Yankee James JY Yager has a foundation for exactly this kind of situation The trouble is Jalen's never gotten any response but form letters and answering machines So his friend Cat comes up with an idea JY lives next door to her If Jalen could get some baseballs from JY's batting cage he could sell them and uickly make the money he needs Unfortunately Jalen gets caught in the act and only uick thinking Cat gets him out before the cops arrive Now what?But just a few days later Jalen finds himself face to face with JY across the dinner table at Cat's house Not the kind of birthday surprise that Cat had expected and now Jalen is caught again In fact JY volunteers to give Jalen a ride home so he can have a talk with his father But in the car JY finds out he's about to be replaced on the infield by a rookie And only if he can bat 1000 in the next three home games will the GM consider resigning JY's contract That's when Jalen offers to help Because of his gift to read what pitch is coming about 95% of the time Jalen can be of great help to JYThrow into the mix a strict coach for the Rockets whose son Chris is not only a great pitcher but the bane of Jalen's existence There's also best friend Daniel comic relief and certain to say and do the most outrageous things And a cameo by Derek Jeter just for good measure This makes for one wild and crazy week of baseballFans of Tim Green will love this one There's a lot of action and some pretty funny situations

    Did you ever want to follow your dream but challenges come before you? That’s what happens to Jalen in the book Baseball Genius by Tim Green and Derek Jeter This book is realistic fiction because it is not a true story but there is a possibility of it happening in real life In the book Jalen is the main character He is a baseball nerd who lives in New York Jalen doesn't have enough money to play on the travel team the Rockets His friend Cat has just moved into a new house and her new neighbor is James Yeager major leaguer Jalen and Cat plan to break into Yeager’s house and steal his baseballs to get money During the break in Jalen gets caught he escapes but is identified by Yeager Later in the book Yeager and Jalen met at a party Yeager notices Jalen was the one who stole his baseballs and this leads to an interesting story on how they build a relationship The theme of the book is when you work hard you get what you want Jalen works hard and has some struggles in the book but persevered through them to play baseball The conflicts of the book are Jalen being poor and Yeager being in jeopardy of losing his job Jalen being poor is character vs society because Jalen’s lack of money makes it harder for him to reach his dream Yeager in jeopardy of losing his job is character vs character because his boss told him he has to do better or he will get fired I thought the book was very well written and I loved the story concept I would say if you don't play baseball or don't know the game of baseball it might not be as entertaining for you as it was for me There were some jokes in the book about baseball that were very funny that you might not get if you don't play baseball I think it was very interesting book and it was an awesome fast paced action packed book I would recommend this book to any person who is looking for a good book to read and especially to people who play baseball Will Yeager keep his job and will Jalen be able to follow his dream? Find out by reading the book Baseball Genius
