He was Alex.

Just a kid who wanted to play baseball more than anything else in the world.

Baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez has drawn on his own childhood experiences to create this exciting picture book. It''s the story of a boy named Alex who knows what it''s like to swing at a wild pitch or have a ball bounce right between his legs. Alex is determined not to let his mistakes set him back--even if it means getting up at the crack of dawn to work on his hitting and fielding before school each day!

Full of the spirit of determination and joy in the game that put AROD in a league of his own, "Out of the Ballpark" is a gift from a great sports hero to every young player who dreams of becoming a star.

"Rodriguez sets up an expected but still satisfying climax...Morrison's...stylized paintings capture the story's energy and his playfully skewed perspectives keep things light."
"Morrison's action-packed illustrations, in vivid hues, help keep the story moving at a brisk pace."
