The Kid Coach
Part of Fred Bowen Sports Story Series
by Fred Bowen
Looking for baseball action? Check out this Sports Story Series book from Washington Post KidsPost columnist and author Fred Bowen – perfect for fans of Mike Lupica and Tim Green.
Baseball season is under way, and Coach Skelly just quit! Worst of all, Scott and his teammates can’t find anyone else to coach the team. It looks as if the Tigers’ season might be over before it really begins.
But then the Tigers have a big idea: what if one of them becomes the coach? After all, some of the biggest names in baseball history were player-coaches. Why not a kid coach?
Author Fred Bowen shares a story of leadership, teamwork, and hidden talents as these young players take control of their own team. Readers can learn more stories of real-life MLB player-managers in the afterword.
