understand the concept of the was took to have the boy Gary play baseball The novel Baseball in April by Gary Soto is a story about these two brothers Michael and Jesse with Michael being the older brother and Jesse being the younger brother They both try out for a baseball team and while Jesse struggles in the tryouts Michael lights them up He id just about everything right and performed well When the team was ecided it turns out that neither Michael nor Jesse made it and they were both isappointed until their friend told them about this travel team that both The Bosss Baby Surprise disappointed until their friend told them about this travel team that was trying out for It was a little lower ranked but the brothers just wanted to play some baseball so they tried out and both made the team My favorite character in this book was Jesse because it is from his point of view and I could relate to him as a struggling athlete when you want nothing than to be good ando everything right but when the time comes you just flop own and on t make a team I also enjoyed this story because it was a baseball book and I personally enjoy reading those the most because they have high suspense moments that can be stretched into a slow motion period Something I Command Performance did not like about this story was that itid not continue for very long I would have liked it to carry into the team that they made and maybe even have them face the team that they Loveknot (Welcome to Tyler, did not make originally in a game I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys to read about baseball books and people overcoming adversity These stories made me smile They filled me with nostalgia for my own childhood or at least the parts of it where I wasn t being beat up for being a fag and reminded me of the resilience of children who manage to rise up through the cracks of pavement meant to choke out community isolate and alienate us as immigrants people of color and exploited workers In relative ignorance of what it feels like to know that no matter how hard you try the finish line for you is this tenement project plantation camp barrio or hood kids stillream and play making the most of what may be the only time in their lives when they will not work not wonder and struggle over bills and worry about the futures of their own children in a society that only makes room for them as exploited workers I loved it though not as much as it s almost twin The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros It made me that much sure that young people hold promise those of us who have to rely on books to remember childhood have lost Baseball in April and others stories by Gary Soto is a fantastic book Because I love every sport existing But my opinion is that it was made only for baseball players Thats basically what the story is all about Jesse practices and practices with his brother Michael to make the team But what s funny is that Michael has never made the team And he s good However I might recommend this book to any reader but mostly to baseball players Otherwise I o love this book.
