Reading Baseball: The Abra Cadavers




 Somehow I missed opening day when Rick Mills, that crafty creator of reading challenges and sometimes literary team captain, made the call for team members for one of the finest ball clubs around...the Abra Cadavers. So, I've grabbed my cleats and am heading out to the field. If you'd like to join the team, just prove your skills by fulfilling the following plate appearances (reading requirements). You too could be an All Star! For full details, check out Rick's page: HERE


I've got my cleats on and have already started swinging.

Thanks for the plug, Bev! Just wanted to let everyone know that all are welcome to come and join the Abra Cadavers baseball team! There are only nine players on the roster at the moment, and that is the bare minimum to take the field. We need to work on our uniforms, too. Maybe a skeleton theme would scare the opposing teams.
