    My favorite MLB team is the San Francisco Giants! :0}

  2. Danielle Hammelef says:

    My favorite team is the Detroit Tigers.

  3. You know my team is the Giants, Greg. I tried to grab this book from the review list but someone beat me to it. Maybe I will get lucky. Thanks for the chance.

  4. This is a great book for teens and adults who love baseball. I like baseball, but don’t have a team — other than since I do live in SW Ohio, I suppose I would cheer for the Reds.

  5. Beth T. says:

    The Yankees are my favorite team.

  6. Merysa Rios says:

    The Atlanta Braves are my favorite team! They play very well and are entertaining to watch.
