Zachary's Ball

author/illustrator: Matt Tavares

series name:
Tavares Baseball Books

When Zachary's father catches a foul ball at Fenway Park and gives it to him, something really amazing happens. Zachary finds himself on the pitcher's mound, wearing a Red Sox uniform and playing against New York! As long as Zachary has the ball, all his baseball fantasies seem to come true. But can he hold on to its magic? Zachary's Ball, Matt Tavares's debut picture book, is a perfect story for celebrating the 100th birthday of the setting that inspired it: Boston's Fenway Park, the oldest park still in use by a major-league club - and one of the country's most beloved ballparks.

"Zachary's Ball is a children's classic." -Peter Gammons, hall-of-Fame baseball reporter
