May Book Brawl Winner

1:46 AM Posted by Lori Calabrese

Our second Book Brawl has officially ended. I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed at the lack of voting, but Book Brawl will persevere each month and hopefully more fans will Get in the Game!

This month, the judges' score came to 2-zip! And the winner is...

Dirt on Their Skirts: The Story of the Young Women who Won the World Championship

This was a tough competition because both are wonderful books in their own right. The fiction stories told in each are heartwarming, inspiring, and all out fun because of the subject matter. I LOVE Dirt on their Skirts because it puts you right in the heart of the action. You feel as though you're on the field, kicking up the dust with the unforgettable women players. The voice of the main character is truly unique and it makes you see the game of baseball as if you were a kid again.

Comments about the books...

"Though I like the illus. better for Mama Played Baseball, Dirt on Their Skirts was the easy pick for me. There was more action. You had xtra innings, stolen bases, scorecards, and the actual game stats at the back of the book, plus pictures of the players in the front."

Thanks to everyone who took the time to get in the game and vote! Help spread the word about Book Brawl and let's make this month's competition a knock-down, drag-out fight! We'll announce the competitors tomorrow!
