Sam the Horse and Jackson the Cat are best friends and baseball fanatics who long to play together on a real team. Unfortunately when they’re old enough, Sam makes the team, and Jackson doesn’t – he’s too slow and can’t hit. He is, however, a terrific thrower, but not fast enough to be a pitcher. When Jackson takes a job at the ballpark as a peanut vendor, he discovers he can still be a legend and inspire his friend (and maybe help win a game)! Tom Egan’s story proves that friendship is a strong bond and not all the winners are on the field. His ink and watercolor drawings are a rich complement to his winning tale.
