But Mo always bats last, and he always plays right field and no balls ever come to right field. Will Mo ever get his chance to help the Lions win? From the Hardcover edition.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review <b>Reviews for <i>Get a Hit, Mo!</i> </b> The text is appropriately simple, yet Adler cunningly coaxes emerging readers to use their understanding of narrative conventions and their prediction skills to make savvy inferences. African-American Mo and his multiethnic, mixed-gender, woman-coached team make for a nicely inclusive read. <i>Kirkus Reviews</i>
