In honor of the Boston Red Sox winning the 2013 World Series, I’m putting together a lineup of children’s books.
1 (Center Field): Leading off, Jacoby Ellsbury is faster than a speeding pony when stealing bases.
2 (2nd Base): Here comes the big mean Dustin Pedroia bunny
3 (Designated Hitter): Big Papi’s Gift is a World Series Championship!!!
4 (1st Base): The Big (Mike) Nap(oli) is batting cleanup.
5 (Left Field): Jonny Gomes and Daniel Nava split time, so we’ll honor the bearded and beardless.
6 (Right Field): Everyone will be riding high in Hawaii with Shane Victorino!
7 (3rd Base): Xander’s gonna party all offseason, with and without pandas!
8 (Shortstop): Nancy may hit better than Stephen, but she’s never won a World Series!
9 (Catcher): Although Jarrod Saltalamacchia lost some playing time at the end, let’s appreciate the salty dog.
Starting Pitcher: Jon Lester may have awful sweaters, but he definitely has awesome heaters.
Closer: Koji Uehara saved games with magic pitches and saved the Red Sox world.
Manager: You can’t manage without apostrophes and John Farrell can’t manage without great players.
Can you think of any other ways to honor the Red Sox with KidLit?
