Zachary's Ball

author/illustrator: Matt Tavares

series name:
Tavares Baseball Books

Zachary is amazed by the sights and sounds at Fenway Park when he goes to his first major-league baseball game. But when his father catches a foul ball at the game and gives it to Zachary, something really amazing happens--suddenly, he finds himself on the pitcher's mound, wearing a Red Sox uniform! As long as Zachary has the ball, all of his baseball fantasies seem to come true. But can he hold onto its magic?

With simple text and striking black-and-white pencil drawings, Matt Tavares brings to life the fantasy of every baseball fan and evokes the spirit of a beloved national pastime.

author’s comments:
Matt Tavares says of ZACHARY'S BALL, "In this age of Astro Turf and retractable dome stadiums, I wanted to create a story that portrayed baseball in a simple, timeless way--a child going to an old-time ballpark with his fielder's mitt, hoping to catch a foul ball or maybe even see his hero hit a homerun." Matt Tavares lives in Arlington, Massachusetts.
