Thank goodness Frank and Ernest have returned! And just in time to save the day, but of course in a most unexpected and hilarious way; this time the beloved duo puts their best paw forward to help out on the baseball diamond. Frank, a bear, and Ernest, an elephant, must master the language of baseball during their stint as managers of the Elmville Mudcats- a minor league team. The animal pals have their work cut our for them; the team is in the cellar (in last place in the league) and Frank and Ernest have to doeverything-sell tickets, run batting practice, announce the game to the fans, and more! But once they learn the right language, it all seems easy. Soon expressions like "fly hawk"- a skillfull outfielder, "smoke artist"- a pitcher who throws lots of fastballs, and "can of corn"- a ball thatrs"s been hit so high it can easily be caught- no longer sound strange to the animal friends. Readers will cheer for Frank and Ernest whose skill with the lingo makes for a great day at the ballpark.
