Ially reviewing it in 2008 Six Innings by James Preller is every baseball players dream book It contained many aspects of baseball that entices many people It had action suspense intensity and a emotional part to the story While reading Six Innings I was drawn closer and closer to it as I flipped the pages Page after page I was transported into the Northeast Gas Electric vs Earl Grubb s Pool Supplies Little League Baseball game I loved reading this book it is by far one of the best sport related books I have ever read It was a word that explained everything All the things that had gone wrong Why his leg broke so easily from a simple fall the follow up tests the thing they found growing in his bone The tumor And now they gave it a name Sam had osteosarcoma Or well osteosarcoma had him92Sam Reiser was if not the most dynamic character in Six Innings Sam was the teams announcer He was the one who announced the players before the game told everyone to rise for the National Anthem and did play by play commentary Sam Reiser was a very important aspect to the Earl Grubb s Pool Supplies baseball team but he didn t feel like he was Sam let his Osteosarcoma define him Sam let Osteosarcoma take control over who he thought he was and that s how Sam formed and shaped his identity He he thought he was and that s how Sam formed and shaped his identity He a rare type of cancer that was very beatable and presented that to the world instead of the Sam Reiser that played on the trampoline that loved ice cream that loved baseball Towards the end of the book Sam Reiser realizes his importance and how much he is loved mostly by his friend Mike When Sam receives all the love and support he finally takes off the mask
of Osteosarcoma and puts on the Sam Reiser mask Overall I felt like Six Innings by James Preller was Osteosarcoma and puts on the Sam Reiser mask Overall I felt like Six Innings by James Preller was extraordinary read You could find every type of genre in this one book that is why I loved it so much I would recommend this book to people 15 and to anyone who finds sport books entertaining Anyone who LOVES a book where a character gets lost in himself and in the ends finds their self would love Six Innings by James Preller I thought this was a good book but could be boring for someone who isn t interested in baseball There is twelve chapters in this book and each chapter is half of an inning Someone who doesn t follow or enjoy baseball would get bored because the author James Preller went into detail and described every pitch and every play You Told in 6 innings from the perspective of the players on the field this book that seems like a sports story actually is a feeling story for boys I m still trying to decide if
