Someday Luke wants to hit a home run like his hero, Jackie Robinson. But the kids on Bedford Ave. wont let him play. So he practices on his own, and whenever the Dodgers play in Brooklyn, he goes up to his roof, where he can see the lights of Ebbets Field and imagine how the game unfolds. When he finally gets to play stickball with the kids, he does so badly that he thinks the team will never let him play again. But then his grandma takes him to see a real game at Ebbets Field. And he discovers that part of being a hero is never giving up, even when there are two strikes against you and the game seems out of reach. A touching salute to 1950s Brooklyn, baseball, and one of the most inspiring players ever to take the field. Reinforced binding. Illus.
