Robert Newton Peck makes the past come alive in Extra Innings. A love of baseball isn't needed to be captivated by the story, as layers are peeled off to reveal Aunt Viddy's past, and hope for Tate's future. The insight into the Negro Baseball Leagues, and the the changes going on in society make this compelling. Students of all ages loved his books, and I used them for oral reading in 3rd-4th grade often. However, Extra Innings is a different sort of book from the Soup stories he is most well known for.

Peck (Cowboy Ghost, 1999, et. stitches together a set of connected but separate tales. They include an airport worker's act of negligence that causes the crash; the Clowns' experiences in towns both hostile and welcoming; the adoption of young Vidalia into the Stonemason family despite the color of her skin; and finally, Vidalia's death, and the keeping of certain promises made to her by Tate and Abbott. They do that, in part, by sharing baseball memories: Abbott, of attending Ty Cobb’s funeral; Vidalia, of Ethiopia’s Clowns, African-American barnstormers who raised her for ten years during the Depression era after she was left as a baby on the team bus.
