Major League Baseball and National Geographic are running the Opening Day Grand Prize Giveaway!
In the giveaway, one lucky winner will win a $100 MLB Store gift card and a copy of the NatGeo book, It’s a Number’s Game! Baseball signed by pitcher Sean Doolittle.
I’m a huge baseball fan (Let’s Go Mets!) and I’ve been trying to get my 9 year-old Lucas to get more interested in baseball so I’d love to win this prize. The book is geared towards kids ages 8-12 so this would be a perfect read for him, especially since he likes math!
Here are some details about the book, It’s a Number’s Game: Baseball ( ages 8-12, National Geographic Kids Books, hardcover, $14.99):
