Baseball Rules

In Chapter 16, the Coyotes didn't actually win their first game, but only tied it. The author didn't realize if you're trailing by one run going to the bottom of the ninth inning, you don't win the game when the leadoff man walks, is sacrificed to second for out number one. Gets to third after a deep fly for out number two. The runner scores on a suicide sqeeze bunt, while the batter safely reaches first base. This only ties the game, but the author says Coyotes win.Maybe Minor Leauge baseball has different rules. Who knows?Thanks for reading.

A nine inning winner!

Empty Creek, Arizona is home to a minor league baseball team, the Coyotes. The team and the town are looking forward to a successful season. However, the first swing of the bat is off the field when someone takes a bat to the head of the owner of the Coyotes, Peter Adcock, whose corpse is found in the visitor's dugout. Unlike a big city where the police do the investigating, the kind citizens of Empty Creek expect their resident amateur sleuth, Penelope Warren, and her sidekick, Mycroft "Big Mike", a twenty-five pound Abyssinian cat, to uncover the identity of the killer. ...... Penelope and Big Mike soon learn that the Coyotes have plenty of problems besides a losing streak. The team is not fiscally sound and female problems permeate the harmony of the players and management. There exists enough suspects to field a team and the real culprit wants to insure that Penelope and Big Mike strike out in their investigation. This may include foul play to silence the intrepid sleuth. ...... BASEBALL CAT is the fourth Big Mike tale and readers will think they entered the World Series with this fabulous novel that does no take itself too seriously. Garrison Allen is a superb artist who provides his fans with a humorous mystery starring two lovable protagonists. Readers will sing "Take Me Out To Ball Game" after perusing this nine inning charmer. .......Harriet Klausner
