Strike Three, You’re Dead

By: Josh Berk


Lenny loves baseball and the Philadelphia Phillies is his favorite team.  Lenny and his two best friends have a fun summer planned of riding their bikes, hanging out and watching the Phillies play.  Lenny’s own baseball abilities leave a lot to be desired, but that’s ok because his life’s ambition is to be a baseball game announcer.  When he hears of a Phillies armchair announcer contest, Lenny wants to win the spot more than anything. With a new purpose in mind, his summer is looking even better. Little did he know, that he and his friends were about to become instigators of a murder investigation.  Would they hit a home run and find the killer, or would they strike out and end up dead themselves? Boy humor abounds in this funny sports/mystery story.
