Game day at a big league ballpark begins early in the morning with a lone groundskeeper mowing the field. Soon, delivery trucks start to arrive to unload boxes of peanuts, pretzels, hot dogs, and beverages whilewashing machines rumble in the laundry room as team uniforms are washed. Players arrive to suit up and start their pre-game routines and, before long, spectators begin to line up. Small details of a typical game day from beginning to end, on the field, in the dugout and stands, and behind the scenes, are shown in exquisite watercolor vignettes, accompanied by a wry text. (Ages 4-7)
