Brothers at Bat

Brothers at Bat - The True Story of an Amazing All-Brother Baseball Team By Audrey Vernick
Grades 1-5

12 Brothers - 1 Baseball team - right here in New Jersey. The Acerra family had 16 children, 12 of them were boys who played baseball. Playing as kids throughout the 1920s and then as adults until 1952 this family became quite famous. They were honored at the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997. Unlike most baseball books about famous players this one highlights an entire family and their love for each other as well as the game of baseball.
