Perfect for teenagers (12,13,14,15,16,17,18)

My 13 year old son hates to read and out of all of the books he had to read in his life he only liked three books and "The Big Field" is one of those three books

Fantastic Read

Mike Lupica does it again. A great story for those readers looking for something a little more challenging than Matt Christopher's famous sports books.

Reading Jungle's Review

This fast-paced sports drama follows the challenges faced by 14-year old star shortstop Hutch Hutchinson. His love of baseball is put to the test with the arrival of competing shortstop and stronger player "D-Will." This further complicates Hutch's tense relationship with his father, himself a former shortstop and disappointed minor leaguer. This attention-grabbing tale relates positive lessons learned about baseball, team, and father relationships. Visit for the full review and recommended book lists!

We Love Mike Lupica!

My kids loved Heat and now The Big Field. The author really knows how to write stories that appeal to young kids -- especially to young boys. It's thoughtfully written and brings the reader beyond the game but into the life of the characters.
