A Ticket to the Pennant: A Tale of Baseball in Seattle

17.99

Written by Mark Holtzen, Illustrated by Jon Skewes

Go back in time to 1955, when the Seattle Rainiers (now the Mariners) faced the Los Angeles Angels for the Pacific Coast League Pennant. Huey has a ticket, but it’s 20 minutes before the game and he can’t find it! See familiar Seattle sights as he retraces his steps, trying to locate his ticket and getting closer and closer to Sick’s stadium. This has a neat narrative style, following the radio broadcast playing on radios along Huey's way. Fun retro style illustrations from Larry Gets Lost illustrator Jon Skewes. Based on a real baseball game, we love the attention to local and historical detail.  Great Pacific NW themed sports book for the young at heart and kids ages 4-8!
