author/illustrator: Matt Tavares

series name:
Tavares Baseball Books

Andy Oyler is the shortest player on the Minneapolis Millers baseball team, not to mention in the whole league. And no matter how hard he tries, he canít seem to get a hit. But one fateful spring day in 1903, a sudden change in the weather leads to a change in Andy Oylerís luck, and Andy discovers that the shortest player can become the gameís biggest hero. Matt Tavares brings a legend to life - and offers a bibliography and authorís note about this all-American true story.

"With its winning combination of satisfying story and cinematic illustrations, Mudball should make a splash with underdogs and baseball fans alike."
