Author Mike Lupica – The Bat Boy

Stories that can capture the essence of baseball tend to capture my
attention. On the Today Show this morning, author Mike Lupica was
interviewed about his latest book, The Bat Boy.

The story is about Detroit Tiger player Hank Bishop, a former steroid
user, who is befriended by a bat boy for the team.

Bishop is fictional, however Lupica says that he is based on various
real life players. He doesn’t say which ones.

Lupica has a love for baseball and writing stories for young adults
that center around the game.

The Bat Boy, along with his other books: Safe At Home,
Million Dollar Thrower
, and The Big Field, are available at

If you decide to read it, let me know what you thought of it.

    My little brother (9), is very interested in Mike Lupica’s books. He just bought the book Lupica wrote called “Heat” last weekend at a local borders. My brother’s goal is to read all of Lupica’s baseball books. I’ll tell you what he thinks of them when he’s done.

    And are you down in Lakeland or were you just reporting news on various players, from what you have heard?
