Brandon (Independence, OH)’s review of Satch & MeThank you! Stosh is back in a new time-travel baseball adventure. This time, his vintage baseball cards carry him and his elderly friend Flip Valentini to to use a radar gun to determine if Satchel Paige really threw the wickedest, speediest fastball in baseball history. But they are also witness to the humiliation, pain and hopelessness of segregation. Stosh is a terrific narrator, a thoroughly modern kid who understands that the past has much to teach us.

The books feature a boy, Joe Stoshack, who can travel through time when he touches old baseball cards. Later he discovers that this power also works on very old photographs. He tries to use this power wisely, and he attempts to change history several times, but it is always something different from his original goal. The novels are typically illustrated with black and white photos from the time period in which the story takes place. Occasionally they will also be illustrated with pictures taken exclusively for the book. The Cambridge Companion to Baseball in its review of baseball fiction calls the books "an eclectic enterprise" which "uninhibitedly embraces the genre's cliches.

Tuesday, September 6, Satch and Me. The first reason I picked this book was because my brother, Benja read a book in this series and recommended it to me. Another reason I chose this book was because it was short enough that I could read in the time given. My favorite characters were Stosh or Joey , Flip, and Satch. Stosh, a thirteen-year-old boy, was a time traveler and a little league player.
