Luis Castillo was the former batboy for the NY Yankees and has worked with some of the greatest players in modern baseball, from Derek Jeter to Alex Rodriguez, and many more. He's pulling on his past to write a book aimed at inspiring children to never stop reaching for their dreams. Accompanied by fun illustrations and some words from some baseball legends, Castillo hopes this is something that every kid will want to pick up.
"The Lucky Baseball" follows a lonely little baseball named Squeegee. Squeegee was left forgotten on a porch while the other neighborhood kids were off playing with others. But he gets spotted by a young kid named Derek who gives him a name and wants to be his first friend. The next day, the two head off to the upcoming NY Yankees game, and Squeegee finds himself in the middle of all the action, with everything riding on him being able to save the day.
"The Lucky Baseball" brings the fun of a big baseball game into the homes of readers, with some big players reimagined as ice cream cones, strawberries, and all sorts of fun characters that aim to get kids excited about the sport. Squeegee's story is one that readers from all over can find something to resonate with, with Squeegee leaving us with these words: "who cares who wins or loses? As long as everyone plays and has some fun".
Readers looking to explore the magical side of baseball purchase "The Lucky Baseball" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
