LOOK WHO'S PLAYING FIRST BASE Will Mike stand up to his teammates to defend his friend? When the Checkmates need a new first baseman, Mike Hagin's new friend, Yuri, seems like a logical choice. But when Yuri starts flubbing plays and the team's star player threatens to quit as a result, Mike is not sure Yuri is such a good choice after all-for a teammate or for a friend. It appears as if Mike will have to choose between his friendship with Yuri and his loyalty to the team-or is there another solution?

I AGREE tha it is not as good as the kid who onlh hit homers
In Look Who¿s Playing First Base, Yuri was the new first baseman from Russia. Yuri isn¿t the best at baseball, but his friend ¿Mike¿ and the team gave him a chance. This is an interesting book with large amounts of details. This is an excellent book because it is about baseball. Baseball is my favorite sport and one of the most famous sports in America. This book also teaches a lesson that is hard to understand in baseball, when the teams are so competitive. The lesson is when there is a new kid on the team, accept him. The team comes out winning big in the end. That is why I recommend this book. Would you like to read Look Who¿s Playing First Base?
I liked this book, but i thought it was kind-of bad that Yuri was always messed up. But It was not as good as the kid who only hit homers.
