Lefty Saves the Day
About the Book
Lefty Saves the Day is the second of six in the Don’t Call Me Lefty series. When a class pizza party depends upon winning a ball game Gracie Carter wants no part of it. Gracie’s parents think it is a great idea for Gracie to get involved. Gracie’s dad buys her a left-handed mitt and teaches Gracie how to throw a ball. A group of Gracie’s classmates join the Carter’s to play ball. Gracie hopes for rain. The surprise was Gracie could throw a ball, but that’s all. She could not bat especially when the pitchers are all right-handed. The day of the game arrived, and the sun was shining. Gracie wanted to pitch, but her class already had a pitcher. She also did not want to bat. Then there was her rival, Scott Collins, who always called her Lefty. Gracie was not sure why teams switched places. Then, it was her turn and she felt like throwing up. She saw a relief pitcher warming up before going to the mound. “I got this,” Gracie said.
