The Acerra family had sixteen children, including twelve ball-playing boys. It was the
1930s, and many families had lots of kids. But only one had enough to field a baseball
team . . . with three on the bench! The Acerras were the longest-playing all-brother
team in baseball history. They loved the game, but more important, they cared for
and supported each other and stayed together as a team. Nothing life threw their way
could stop them.


Full of action, drama, and excitement, this never-before-told true story is vividly
brought to life by Audrey Vernick’s expert storytelling and Steven Salerno’s stunning
vintage-style art.

This year marks my 16th year in education. I started my career teaching 5th grade and then served as an elementary school principal. Prior to serving as 2nd grade teacher, I worked with an international non-profit that provides teacher training and then as a 4th and 5th grade teacher. I have loved each part of my journey, but my heart is truly in the classroom. I love coming to school each day to help my students learn and grow!

Having moved down to 2nd grade from the upper grades (4th/5th), we have a limited number of books in our classroom library. I'm working to incorporate a wide variety of titles, authors and interests into our room to create an environment where reading is authentic, meaningful, and fun! Non-fiction and titles that may be of particular interest to boys are top of my list!

My students are eager to please and hard-workers. Our school serves a large population of high-poverty students, so having reading materials readily available at school is particularly important.
