Overview
Brother and Sister Bear like the idea of playing on a real baseball team instead of playing in their backyard, but they soon discover that competition is hard work

Publishers Description
When backyard sluggers Brother and Sister join the Bear Country Cub League, they get real uniforms and play on a baseball field. They also have pressure to win and competition from the other cubs. But it's Mama's advice that helps them prepare sensibly for team sports.  
Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia.  They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art.  They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art.  During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory.  When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines.  After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy.  Their first published children's book was called The Big Honey Hunt .  It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears".  

Over 50 children's books later, Stan and Jan still plan all of their books together -- both write the stories, and both write the pictures.  They live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Entertainment, and No Lectures!  Oct 8, 2002
The lack of explicit moralizing is one of the best things about this instructive and funny book; too often this series is bogged down in parental admonitions. Yet the lessons are there: Practice, learn the rules, cope with pressure, play your best--but don't expect perfection. The pacing is excellent, the parents' and the cubs' perspectives are well-balanced, and the text is often very humourous. This excerpt describes the bears' practice field:

"There were no foul lines, just base paths worn by year after year of cubs running the bases. So there were a lot of arguments about foul balls. There was a rule against sliding into second base, because second base was a rock. And any ball that was hit into the duck pond in left field was a ground-rule double and an automatic time-out while they fished it out."

The book has 29 pages, with illustrations on each page. The illustrations are adequate, showing a fair amount of action in a straight-forward style. Recommended!

 
No Morals Here.  Sep 16, 2002
One of the things that distinguish the Berenstain Bears books from many other children's series is that the books almost always contain a moral lesson. Sometimes the lesson is big, sometimes it is small. However, those lessons are usually there.

Except in THE BERENSTAIN BEARS GO OUT FOR THE TEAM, there is no moral platitude. It's just a story. Brother and Sister Bear love playing baseball and end up trying out for a regular league baseball team. That's about it. It's a nice little story and kids who are trying out for a team may enjoy reading it because it illustrates that being nervous is common to all. Other than that though, it's just a nice story.

 
My Experiences  Dec 2, 1999
I really liked this book becuase when i was a freshman i tried out for the softball team and was scared. but i made it with flying colors and to find out if the bears do you'll have to read the book!
