As a young baseball fan, one of my favorite players—behind hometown hero Robin Yount—was the Iron Man Cal Ripken, Jr. With his talent, tenacity and good spirit, he was the ultimate role model for kids. Ripken retired a legend, and now he’s turned to writing inspiring children’s books, like his newest: Wild Pitch.


In Wild Pitch, Little League pitcher Robbie Hammond has gone from almost unhittable, to being unable to hit the strike zone. His team’s struggling as their star pitcher continues to lose his mojo, and no one—except Robbie—knows where the real problems lie. During last year’s All Star game, Robbie injured a batter with an errant pitch, and now he can’t shake the feeling that it’ll happen again.


As your little sluggers prepare to take to the field this season, teach them a lesson about overcoming challenges with Wild Pitch.
