    1. John R. Tunis Bruce Brooks

      John Roberts Tunis the inventor of the modern sports story ,was an American writer and broadcaster Known for his juvenile sports novels, Tunis also wrote short stories and non fiction, including a weekly sports column for the New Yorker magazine As a commentator Tunis was part of the first trans Atlantic sports cast and the first broadcast of the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament to the United States.After graduating from Harvard and serving in the Army during World War I, Tunis began his writing career freelancing for American sports magazines while playing tennis in the Rivera For the next two decades he wrote short stories and articles about sports and education for magazines including Reader s Digest, The Saturday Evening Post and Esquire Tunis work often protested the increasing professionalization of sports in America He believed that amateur participation in sports taught values important for good citizenship like perseverance, fair play and equality, and that the emphasis on professional sports was turning America into a country of spectators His sports books also tackled current social issues such as antisemitism and racial equality.Though Tunis never considered himself a children s writer, all but one of his twenty four books were published for juveniles their success helped create the juvenile fiction book market in the 1940s Books like Iron Duke 1938 , All American 1942 and Keystone Kids 1943 were well received by readers and critics Iron Duke received the New York Herald Tribune Spring Book Festival Award for best juvenile novel and was named a The Horn Book Magazine Best Book The Child Study Association of America gave its Golden Scroll Award to Keystone Kids.In his tribute to the writer, Bernard Hayes said Tunis has probably made good readers of millions of young people His success with the juvenile audience helped change the publishing industry Along with writers like Howard Pease, his books demonstrated to publishers that there was money to be made in targeting books for teenagers His influence went beyond simply creating a market for young adult books In his attempt to link sports with the communities in which they are played, he broached some highly significant issues in the literature written for and about America s youth , according to John S Simmons in John R Tunis and the Sports Novels for Adolescents A Little Ahead of His Time Tunis never considered himself a writer of boys books, insisting his stories could be read and enjoyed by adults He felt that the word juvenile was an odious product of a merchandising age Despite his dislike of the term, Tunis novels helped create and shape the juvenile fiction book market.

    1. This is ostensibly a sports book for young adults teens, but that description doesn t really do it justice John R Tunis wrote a series of excellent baseball books, all involving fictional players on the very real Brooklyn Dodgers Unlike the usual run of the mill sports books for boys stories, these ones involve adults albeit that the main characters are pretty young and involve adult situations Tunis gives a good look into what baseball must have been like in the 1940 s This may seem dated to so [...]

    2. When I was growing up, I read dozens of sports books My favorite was O Reilly of Notre Dame The best author of these type of stories was John R Tunis Somehow I missed him, maybe because he wrote mostly about baseball and I was interested in football I recently was re introduced to the genre on the internet and decided to mooch some of Tunis books and see what I had missed.If this book is typical of Tunis stories, I m sorry I missed them back in the 1940s and 50s when he was writing them In this [...]

    3. This book introduces Spike and Bob Russell, brothers, orphans and a superb shortstop second base combination The story opens with them toiling in the minor leagues but making a very good impression on their manager Grouchy With their skills and confidence, the brothers move up to the major leagues and begin playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers When they arrive, the team is that in name only, there is no cohesion among the players, and they are mired in the second division, with little hope of rising [...]

    4. The protagonist of this book is Spike Russell Spike manages the Brooklyn Dodgers The Dodgers arent doing so well, and Spike struggles to keep them in the league standings Spike then signs 3 new players to the team which make a big difference One of the new players is Jewish and his other team mates dont like that The teams gets worse until Jocko does something which changes the look of the team I would recommend this book to who wants to read an interesting book You dont have to like baseball to [...]

    5. This is an interesting read Captures the time period very well The subplot with the Jewish catcher and the unexpected rise of one character to manager seem somewhat contrived but all in all it s not bad.

    6. I was surprised to find that I liked this book Reminded me of when I was a huge Braves fan as an early teen The writing style is sharp and gritty, cutting right to the core of the thing without ceremony Excellent stuff

    7. I liked this book, though it is a good bit dated The kid that plays well and is picked up by a team from a small town can t believe the great big world out there Some character learning
