Three Strikes for Rotten Ralph
Title: Three Strikes for Rotten Ralph
Author: Jack Gantos
When Rotten Ralph, the cat, fails to win a spot on a baseball team with his friend Sarah, he becomes the “cat boy” instead, still dreaming of proving himself the superstar he imagines himself to be.
Before he tries out for the new Fighting Squirrels baseball team, Rotten Ralph is sure he is going to be a superstar. Never mind that he doesn’t have any skills and doesn’t want to practice. While his owner, Sarah, is doing everything she can to make the team, she tries to help Ralph do his best, too. But with his imagination running wild, Ralph’s worst is what comes out.
