    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. Technically a work of juvenile fiction or maybe Young Adult by today s reckoning , World Series is the second book in The Kid From Tomkinsville series by John R Tunis, who is considered the inventor of the modern sports story The book concerns young Brooklyn Dodgers player Roy Tucker from Tomkinsville, naturally who started out as a pitcher but converted to a power hitting outfielder after an injury detailed in the first book of the series Roy must overcome a beaning in the pre helmet days and s [...]

    2. I read this book because it was a squeal to a book i read earlier this year I enjoyed this book well enough but it seemed to me to be classic story of an underdog and that is kind of in abundance when it comes to sports books Roy Tucker is still pitching for the Dodgers and leads them to a world series The Dodgers make a huge come from behind victory and take the World series victory The theme of this book is to never give up no matter what even if things are looking bad or the lead looks insurm [...]

    3. Despite what you read here, Tunis World Series is Book 2 in his 8 book series on the Brooklyn Dodgers It was published in 1941 and carries on where Book 1, The Kid from Thompkinsville left off The Dodgers, having won the pennant in Book 1 now challenge the Cleveland Indians in the World Series Keystone Kids, published in 1943, is actually Book 3 in this series.

    4. World Series The book that I read was World Series, and the author is John R Tunis The genre is historical fiction The main character is Roy Kid Tucker He was the right fielder for the Brooklyn Dodgers The story takes place in the late 1930 s Roy is a younger player on the team, who still has a lot to learn Throughout this book, he learns just about everything He is a solid fielder with a fantastic arm He used to be a pitcher, but he hurt his arm so he was converted into an outfielder He observe [...]

    5. The fictional Brooklyn Dodgers team that were the subject of a series of books by Tunis have managed to win the National League pennant and are facing the powerful Cleveland Indians in the World Series While the Dodgers had to fight until the very end of the season to win their title, the Indians were way ahead and able to coast at the end of the season Therefore, the Dodger players are tired while the Indians are relatively fresh.The book moves through the seven games of the series with ups and [...]

    6. I thought World Series was a good book, but it wasnt what I thought it was It is about a rookie Baseball player named Roy Tucker playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers in the world series They have a large task at hand they have been battling with injuries and its gonna take all of them to beat the Cleveland They were tied in the series it was the 7th game and Cleveland was up by one run They re manager Old David Lenord hasnt ever one a world series with the dodgers and has been there for years This w [...]

    7. World Series John R TunisThe Brooklyn Dodgers are underdogs in the World Series against the Cleveland Indians The rookie Roy Tucker is the Dodgers best hitter, but he gets hit in the head the first game and has to sit out the next two games That puts Dave Leonard, the commanding manager of the Dodger under intense pressure He never gets down on his team Razzle Nuegent, the Dodgers best pitcher, is put under pressure when the team falls behind three games to one Does Roy get back in time Can the [...]

    8. Originally published in 1941, it is part of a series that follows Tucker from being a young man on the family farm to being the rising star on the Dodgers team contending in the World Series Today the series reads like historical fiction a term that I have serious issues with and is one of the better sports novels from the era Most of the characters are two dimensional, but Tucker has just enough depth to keep the story interesting as he handles adversity There are too many exnteded passages tha [...]

    9. I read a bunch of young adult baseball books when I was a kid This was my favorite, and it holds up well I really like the feel of its old timey wide eyed love for baseball It doesn t strike me as a realistic portrayal of what things were really like in the MLB in the 40s, but it s still a pretty interesting historical document for what it says about how kids in the 40s might have imagined it all going down.

    10. I thought the book was pretty good I love baseball so it kept me entertained throughout the book Most of the book wasn t very exciting except during the games, but i didn t mind because love baseball The author did a good job keeping the book flowing pretty well which helped to read the book easily.

    11. I m not a huge baseball fan, but the dramatic tension toward the end literally gave me that hair raising excitement feeling Also it s interesting to read this and realize that some things about sports are timeless.

    12. The book was so good it really told how the Brooklyn Dodgers pulled through in the bottom of the 10th to win the world series But to get the full affect you have to read the first book called The Kid From Tomkinsville.
