Brothers At Bat (Audrey Vernick)

If my dad were still alive I'd buy him this book to read to kids!
The  Acerra family had twelve boys and four girls, and a dog named Pitch. They loved baseball. For 22 years in a row their high school baseball team had an Acerra on it! In 1938 they formed their own semi-pro team and completed against other teams in New Jersey. Their dad was the coach. It was a family game for them and they loved playing it together.

They were the longest playing all brothers baseball team ever.

I love the illustrations in this book too.
