Guide to Juvenile Baseball Books: O
- Oechsli, Kelly. Mice at Bat n.p.: Harper & Row, 1986. [An I Can Read Book] Mice who infest a ballpark agree to a game against mice who infest another -- with a cat as umpire.
Clever beginning reader, nice of its type.
- O'Sullivan, William J. "The Kid Catcher." In Margulies (1948). Underprivileged young catcher and silver-spoony veteran pitcher make an odd-couple battery, but they revive the fortunes of the New York Titans.
- Otfinoski, Steven. Who Stole Home Plate? Illustrated by Bert Dodson. New York: Little Simon, 1992. [A Southside Sluggers Baseball Mystery] A youth-league team acquires a new mascot--a dog they adopt and name "Home Plate"--but then they lose him to a dognapper.
Pleasant chapter book, one of a successful series of juvenile baseball mysteries.
