Felix knows his dad was a famous baseball player in Cuba—and that his father risked everything to send Felix to America. But his mom won’t reveal anything else. When a team with Cuban players comes into town, Felix wonders if they knew his dad, and sneaks into their locker room to ask. That’s when the players mistake him for their new batboy.

To uncover his father’s story, Felix runs away from home to become the team’s batboy. His bittersweet adventure glows with the friendship of a miraculous dog, the warmth of a mother’s love, and the magic of baseball.

I think that this book was okay I would say that it is about a boy named Felix and he wins these tickets to go somewhere but I wouldn't say where!

This is a story about baseball and family relationships. Felix's dad is a famous baseball player in Cuba, which is where Felix gets his love of the game from. But Felix lives with his mother in the USA. In the end, he becomes a famous baseball team's bat boy.

It's an exciting story about a boy who loves baseball and runs away to a team and becomes their bat boy and helps them get ready for games. At the end of the story, he meets up with his mom again and she becomes the team manager.

I chose this book because I thought it would be a good book to read. I am enjoying reading this book. It is an middle level book to read. It also has some Spanish words in it.
