Strike Three You're Dead by Josh Berk

Strike Three, You're DeadThis book was recommended from our school library, and I gave it a rating of four out of five. Lenny, Mike, and Other Mike (that's what they call him!) love baseball and the Phillies; actually, Other Mike is not as obsessed as Lenny and Mike. Lenny wins a contest and gets to announce one inning of a Phillies' game, but the game never lasts long enough for that to happen when the 19-year-old pitcher dies on the mound. The boys, along with an unlikely helper, are convinced the pitcher was murdered, so they set out to find the killer. Unless the killer kills them first.

The plot was easy to follow, and it was fun to read about the interaction of the boys. The suspects kept switching around as the boys found more clues, but I had a hunch about the killer's identity early in the plot. There were many references to baseball, so baseball and mystery fans can both enjoy this book.
