Get out the peanuts and Cracker Jacks and get ready for fun with America's national sport. The unofficial anthem of baseball has never looked better than it does in this joyful board book.

A sweet, boardbook introduction to the baseball diamond. Colorful, collage-like illustrations are a kid's ticket into "Sluggers Stadium," where two animal teams step up to the plate and vie for victory--all cheered on by Katie Casey, the baseball-loving cat. And what a game it is! Giraffe winds up at the pitcher's mound, hoping for a strikeout. But, with a thwack, ball meets bat, and Crocodile is off and running. Can Tiger tag him out at first? He'd better, because Elephant's up next and that will cause a commotion.

Katie Casey was baseball mad.
She had the fever and she had it bad.
Just to root for the hometown crew,
every cent, that Katie spent.
