Ryan’s practiced a lifetime for this very chance
pitch the big game and make the ball dance.
He has a sinker, a fastball, a change-up, a slurve.
most important of all, he has guts and the nerve
to pitch when most needed
with courage and verve.
Young Ryan dreams of pitching on Opening Day for his beloved San Francisco Giants — and one night that dream comes true as Ryan is called upon to save the game. The Night Before Baseball at the Park by the Bay is the joyful tale of a young boy’s baseball fantasy. This 32 page children’s picture book is richly illustrated with charming characters, vividly animated baseball scenes, and delightful original verse. The book is being published in partnership with the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants in July 2013.
