The Kid Coach

by Fred Bowen

Scott and his teammates can’t find an adult to coach their team, so they must find a leader among themselves.

The Tigers are in trouble. Baseball season is underway, and Coach Skelly has just quit. When Scott and his teammates can’t find an adult to coach the team, it looks as if the Tigers’ season might be over before it really begins. But then the players have an idea: what if one of them became coach? They learn about leadership and discover unique and unrecognized talents among their own friends.

Author Fred Bowen continues his Sport Story Series with play-by-play action that’s sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats! An afterword provides the real stories of player-managers in Major League Baseball history. For more on this title, visit the Sports Story Series website here.
