When I first looked at it, I got really exited because I saw that it was about baseball. I liked learning the facts I didn't know about in the story. But, as we got further into the story, it became sort of hard to follow. I couldn't really comprehend this story like I usually do. It was a pretty good story, but not the best one that we've read this year.

I think that this story was extremely hard to follow especially since I do not like baseball it felt like to me that the story was trying to teach me things I already knew or did not know and when I do not like the topic I tend to zone out.

I honestly didn't care for it that much. I didn't really follow along but it was an okay story. I think that most of the other stories we've read, were better than this one.

it really brings to my attention that back then was a lot different and how we have stepped up in our technology, behavior, and etc.. because then we had to play sports normally and now it is way different from a long time ago.

In my personal opinion the title and cover are both misleading it sounds like it would be about a sports game while in all actuality it was the exact opposite it was also a sad ending so overall it wasn't my favorite.

In my opinion it was a good story with a lot of detail but it wasn't my favorite story that we have read. It had some good points that made a lot of sense to me but it just wasn't my favorite.

The Shutout was not the best story we've read. It was hard to follow and it got kind of boring in the middle of the story. But it was kind of interesting to learn about how much baseball has changed. It was also cool to learn about the history of baseball.

I thought it was really interesting how it showed the change of baseball over the years. It really gets you thinking about how things will change in the future. It was fun reading this story, and coming up with ways that the sport may change.

This was one of my favroite storys. Some boys would play base ball and actually try to hit the runner. It soon evolved into throwing it to the runners next base. Im reading a book (oh wow its not online, shocking) called The Brooklyn Nine. Its amazing and honestly i love it. Ive been reading allot of books lately about this sort of stuff.

On the story I liked it, I like baseball and I got excited and I learned stuff I didn't even know about baseball. That end the story got boring but I still liked it.

I didn't like that the black people were being used as slaves to play baseball for money. I also didn't like that the black people couldn't play baseball in the same league as the white people.
