Special Order—Subject to Availability


From minor league teams such as the Iowa Cubs and Las Vegas 51s to the major league ball clubs including the Cincinnati Reds and New York Yankees, these fun, engaging books tell the stories of young local boys who dream of stepping to the plate for their favorite baseball franchises. Filled with relatable stories away from the baseball field as well, these coming-of-age tales show the importance of never giving up hope and always believing in dreams.



The first local book written about the Iowa Cubs and a young boy from Iowa getting a chance to step onto the field of Principal Park, this story is filled with zany tales including fishing at Creeper’s Pond and playing pick-up games in a backyard Field of Dreams. These touching scenes will keep young readers on the edge of their seats and show them the importance of believing in dreams as Michael Powers stands at the plate, just one pitch away from baseball immortality.
