"You wanna know who threw the fastest pitch ever?"

Many baseball players claim that Satchel Paige was the fastest pitcher in the history of the game. Stosh and his coach, Flip Valentini, are on a mission to find out. With radar gun in tow, they travel back to 1942 and watch Satch pitch to power hitter Josh Gibson in the Negro League World Series. They soon learn that everything about Satch is fast—whether it’s his talking, driving, or getaways. But is he really the fastest pitcher who ever lived?

This baseball card adventure is a whirlwind of excitement, drama, and curveballs—starring one of the liveliest athletes in the game!

Clear rating

Thirteen-year-old Joe Stoshack (aka "Stosh") is a baseball fan and a time traveler. To clock the fastest pitch of all time, he and his elderly little league coach, Flip, travel back to 1942 to see Satchel Paige at the Negro League World Series. There they experience racial injustices, get involved with a beautiful waitress and her crazy father, and witness some of the greatest moments in baseball history. Even though I'm a baseball fan, I don't think I would have picked up this book if it wasn't on the list for Battle of the Books. I'm glad it was, because it was really good. It was fun and interesting, and I liked the way it addressed the big issue of segregation. It seems like it would naturally inspire kids to learn more about the Negro Leagues. There were a few plot holes, but they weren't really all that important. I'd recommend this book for kids ages 8-12, especially sports fans. It would also be a good choice for a reluctant reader.read more
