What's The L.A. Dodger About

Publisher Summary

Now batting third–book #3 in a brand-new early chapter book mystery series where each book is set in a different American ballpark! It’s spring break and Kate and Mike are off to Los Angeles to visit Kate’s dad, a scout for the Dodgers. But all is not sunny in L.A.–strange things have been happening to Kate’s dad. Pages have gone missing from his clipboard. He’s gotten threatening phone calls. And he thinks he’s being followed! Is someone after Mr. Hopkins’s top secret scouting reports? The L.A. Dodger includes a fun fact page about Los Angeles’s Dodger Stadium. Cross Ron Roy’s A to Z mystery series with Matt Christopher’s sports books and you get the Ballpark Mysteries: fun, puzzling whodunnits aimed at the younger brothers and sisters of John Feinstein’s fans.
