What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Blake Easton has never played organized sports, so when he makes the local traveling baseball team as a bench player he is thrilled; and when the team’s star second baseman (and all around annoyance) Kyle, breaks his foot in the very first game the coach calls on Blake to fill in–but Blake is not sure he can perform as well as Kyle, and even less sure that he can trust Kyle’s helpful advice.

Who Wrote Diamond Double Play

author
Jake Maddox

Who is Jake Maddox? Athlete, author, world-traveler - or all three? He has surfed in Hawaii, scuba-dived in Australia, and climbed the mountains of Peru and Alaska. His books range from the most popular team sports to outdoor activities to survival adventures and even to auto racing. His exploits have inspired numerous writers to walk in his footsteps - literally! Each of his stories is stamped with teamwork, fair play, and a strong sense of self-worth and discipline. Always a team-player, Maddox realizes it takes more than one man (or woman) to create a book good enough for a young reader. He hopes the lessons learned on the court, field, or arena and the champion sprinter pace of his books can motivate kids to become better athletes and lifelong readers.
