A Pitch in Time


Winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award, A Pitch in Time tells the tale of a modern-day boy who tumbles from his bike and wakes up to find he has traveled back in time to the spring of 1864 in rural Michigan during the Civil War.  His southern accent, cultural views and even the sport he loves all come in conflict with everything he has ever known.  The story unfolds as his new 19th century friend, Sally Norton, helps him learn the ways of a war-torn Northern community.
