About the Author
Derek Jeter is a fourteen-time All-Star and five-time World Series winner who has played for one team--the storied New York Yankees--for all twenty seasons of his major league career. His grace and class on and off the field have made him an icon and role model far beyond the world of baseball. Paul Mantell is the author of more than 100 books for young readers, including books in the Hardy Boys and Matt Christopher series.
Like his first foray into middle grade sports fiction, "The Contract "(S. & S., 2014), Jeter presents a fictionalized story based on his own childhood. Each title in the series is based on the principles of Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation. "Hit & Miss" revolves around the maxim "Think Before You Act." ...sharp baseball action keeps the plot moving. This series will have no trouble finding an appreciative audience.--School Library Journal "June 2015 "
