    1. By accepting twenty dollars a week to play third base for the Philadelphia Athletics in 1866, Lip Pike became baseball’s first professional player.But before that, Lip was just a boy who liked to run. He was the son of Dutch Jewish immigrants, whose father worked in a habadashery, and whose mother wasn’t sure playing ball is for her nice, Jewish boy. The book takes the reader through Lip’s early obstacles all the way to his professional success when he become America’s first home run kin [...]

    2. It seemed like everyone in Brooklyn was playing Base, a wonderful ball game. The Pike family wanted their son, Lipman to succeed in school and so succeed in life. Lip liked playing Base. He tried to go along with his parents’ wishes, but finally he moved to another city to play ball. His parents were astonished to learn that Lip would be making money playing ball; this seemed preposterous to them. Lip became the first home run king.Big illustrations that give each character an oversized head a [...]

    3. This was an interesting guy. Certainly it gives a new look to the old game of baseball or "base", as it was being called at that time.

    4. This children's book about early baseball covers some fascinating parts of the game in its formative days.

He was fast, strong, and an entertaining player to watch.This short book is filled with things that can lead kids to other aspects of sports history, if they get interested. It's a perfect book to showcase in the spring, along with other baseball books, because so l [...]

    5. Lipman Pike's love of base ball (in its earliest days in America) fired his heart from the time he was a young boy in his father's shop. His story is intertwined with that of baseball's early years, immigration, bigotry and political corruption, not to mention the development of Atlantic coast cities at the turn of the 19th/20th century. The author notes extend and clarify details and make an amazing story even more impressive.
