Catching Rainbows

The Story of Johnny Vander Meer’s Back to Back No Hitters

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


12-year-old Richie doesn’t think things can get any worse. Not only does his highly competitive nature make it difficult for him to make friends, but when his father breaks his leg, Richie discovers that he must get a job to help his family. His initial sadness is quickly replaced when he lands a job as Batboy for the Cincinnati Reds. But trouble continues to brew as Richie discovers that he must answer to a bossy Senior Batboy, obey many strict rules, and convince the guys at school that he really did land the job. 

Can Richie hang onto his new job and have the experience of a lifetime witnessing Johnny Vander Meer pitch a record two-in-a-row no-hitter? Find out in this heart-warming tale of encouragement, perseverance, and friendship as one young boy learns that baseball is a world where you really can catch rainbows! 

Catching Rainbows: The Story of Johnny Vander Meer’s Back to Back No Hitters is the first in a series of stories about amazing moments in baseball history as told/experienced by a batboy.
