Outstanding writing and illustrations inspire understanding and affection for these lost heroes of our national game. Following our reading, we will take a stroll through our baseball exhibition and be inspired to create your own baseball card. One lucky winner will be chosen at Storytime to receive a Trenton Thunder mini race car model donated by Trenton Thunder.
