The Monday Poll: Baseball in YA Lit

monday_pollGood morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we closed out Women’s History Month by asking about your favorite real female figure from history depicted in YA lit. Your top pick was Anastasia Romanov as depicted in Anastasia’s Secret by Susanne Dunlap, with 26% of the vote, followed by Cleopatra Selene in Cleopatra’s Moon by Vicky Alvear Schecter, with 21%. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

Now for this week’s poll– a few weeks ago, I revealed my lack of sports knowledge to you but plunged ahead with a basketball-themed poll anyway– well, I understand that today is the first day of major league baseball season, so I’m at it again! A sports poll! Baseball fans out there, please tell us your favorite YA baseball book… I could use recommendations! Choose from the options below, or suggest another book in the comments.

  1. Under the Blood Red Sun by Graham Salisbury may be more appropriate for middle-grade than YA, but baseball is a common thread that ties the narrator (a Japanese-American living in Pearl Harbor when the Japanese bomb them) to his friends.

  2. Will Weaver’s STRIKING OUT, FARM TEAM, and HARD BALL are wonderful novels even for those who don’t love baseball.
