Best Books on Sports: Ballpark Mysteries

Ballpark Mysteries by David A. Kelly

The Ballpark Mysteries is a fantastic series written by David A. Kelly.  Two young kids, Kate and Mike, are the main characters.  They solve exciting mysteries while teaching you a lot about baseball.  There are 13 books in the series with another one on the way (#13: Capital Catch will be released in March).  My favorite book is Super Special #1: World Series Curse.  I like it because it explores two important baseball curses: The Curse of the Bambino (Red Sox) and The Curse of the Billy Goat (Cubs).  If you like mysteries, excitement, baseball and are at a reading level for chapter books, you are the kind of person that should buy this series.  This series is superb and worthy of five stars!

    Elliot – thank you for your review of the Ballpark Mystery Series. I am a big fan of the Cubs (second only to the Royals), so Super Special #1: World Series Curse sounds intriguing.

    I have read every book in this series and can’t wait for the next one this spring. It is already on pre-order with AMZN Prime. Please write a review the second it comes out!

    Elliott – Thank you for the mystery book series review which sound intriguing. The Cubs definitely broke the billy goat curse finally winning the Word Series this year!

    Given the trades unfolding during the Royals’ off season, it will be hard for us to make it back to the big show in 2017! . Let’s hope the Royals management solves the big mystery of how they think we can win games without our key pitchers !!!
    You should write the next good mystery for us all to read 🙂

    This sounds like a great series-you had me at “The Curse of the Billygoat” as I love the Cubbies! Thanks for sharing!
