Every kid knows that right field is where the not-so-good baseball players play. Welch’s nameless hero knows that too and he doesn’t have to wait for his assigned position. He knows exactly where to go and he knows what he’ll be doing: watching the dandelions grow. Until he sees that a ball is coming right at him! Welch tells the story in easy rhymes and Simont’s gentle watercolors create the perfect Saturday afternoon ballgame. His body language for the kids is spot on.
