Brothers at Bat: The True Story of an Amazing All-Brother Baseball Team by Audrey Vernick

Recommended Grades: 4-8

According to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, from the 1860′s until the1940′s, there were twenty-nine baseball teams made up entirely of brothers.  The Acerras played longer than any other.  This is their story. 

Lesson Idea:  


Biography/Narrative Nonfiction:  Read aloud Brothers at Bat: The True Story of an Amazing All-Brother Baseball Team discuss the author’s craft.  The author actually had an opportunity to interview two of the brothers and interspersed their quotes into this narrative nonfiction piece.  This book could certainly be used in a study of the history of baseball and you could pair it with We Are the Ship: The Story of Negro League Baseball.
