Author David A. Kelly is a writer of a lot of different things; he has written about travel, contributed to books, and writes children’s books. He is also a technology analyst and gets published in many corporate magazines. He is the Business Travel Expert on, and writes about travel for many newspapers. To make a long story short, the man writes all kinds of different things, that get published all over the place. Kelly holds and MBA in Marketing that he got from Bentley University, a BA from Syracuse University, and an MA in Cognitive and Neural Networks from Boston University. Kelly is a member of an organization that is made up of the nation’s leading professional travel writers (that is called Society of American Travel Writers). He lives near Fenway Park with his two sons (who are named Scott and Steven), his dog (who is named Samantha), and his wife (who is named Alice).

Kelly writes the both “MVP” series, and the “Ballpark Mysteries” series. The “Ballpark Mysteries” series features a different baseball stadium in each novel, and is meant for readers just starting out in elementary school. He also wrote a book about Babe Ruth and a picture book about baseball rubbing mud that is called “Miracle Mud” about a man’s new technique that helped fixed the way that baseballs were broken in before games.

“The Fenway Foul-up” is the first novel in the “Ballpark Mysteries” series that was released in the year 2011. Mark Meyers illustrates the series of books. Kate’s mom is a sports reporter, and because of that, Mike Walsh and his cousin Kate Hopkins both have all access passes to Fenway and tickets to the Red Sox’s home games. A big slugger and star for the Red Sox, Big D has his lucky bat is stolen during batting practice, in full view of quite a few people. It seems to be the only bat the dude can hit with. Can Kate and Mike locate the bat before the Sox lose the game?

Fans of the novel found that even if the kid did not like baseball, they would enjoy the mystery element that the novel had to offer. These novels will keep everyone interested in the novel, and even captures the atmosphere of Fenway Park, the place that this novel took place in. It even helps the parents get their kids to read (even the ones who do not like to read), and the parents are able to bond more with their kids through these books.

“The Pinstripe Ghost” is the second novel in the “Ballpark Mysteries” series that was released in the year 2011. Mark Meyers illustrates the series of books. Mike and Kate are waiting while Kate’s mom is at one of her boring press conferences at the new Yankee Stadium right as a team official says something that makes the conference not so boring. There are some rumors going around that indicate that the ghost of Babe Ruth is haunting the new stadium. There is a chill air that blasts down a certain service hallway before home games, and there are also bumps and thumps going on too. Is it really the Bambino, looking for his old locker?

Fans of the novel found that no matter what, boy or girl, readers enjoyed reading the book, finding that it is the perfect series, and appeals to baseball fans, or mystery fans. This book helped young readers improve their skills and make sure that they were reading. Some found that the book brought the parent and child closer together.

“The L. A. Dodger” is the third novel in the “Ballpark Mysteries” series that was released in the year 2011. Mark Meyers illustrates the series of books. It is time for spring break, and so Kate and Mike are off to Los Angeles. Kate is able to visit her dad, who works as a scout for the Dodgers. Strange things have been happening to him, for example, some of his papers have gone missing off of his clipboard and someone is threatening him. He also thinks that he is being followed. Someone may just be after his scouting reports.

Fans of the novel cannot recommend the novel enough, and cannot get enough people to read the book. This book has parents and kids trading off on reading duty. Kids who read the books are able to finish the books in a single day and are still ready for more and more. Fans cannot wait for the next book in the fun series.

“The Astro Outlaw” is the fourth novel in the “Ballpark Mysteries” series that was released in the year 2012. Mark Meyers illustrates the series of books. Kate and Mike meet Nick Rice (astronaut commander) before a game at the Houston Space Center. He is planning on putting a rare moonrock on display before he does an autograph event later on. Someone steals the rock after knocking out the astronaut. Mike and Kate have to figure things out, before it is too late and their only clue is a broken green feather.

Fans of the novel like the way that the books provide a challenge, but they are still able to fly through them when reading them. They also contain quite a few facts about the stadiums that are being featured. The novels provide excitement for whomever picks them up and reads them.

“The All-Star Joker” is the fifth novel in the “Ballpark Mysteries” series that was released in the year 2012. Mark Meyers illustrates the series of books. It is time for the All-Star Game, and this year, it will be held in Kansas City. Mike and Kate get to catch pop-ups at the Home Run Derby where they meet a boy named Andy (who has a dad named Josh Robinson, who is an All- Star catcher). Josh finds himself in hot water, before the derby even ends. Someone is playing practical jokes on some of the other players and a coach believes that it is Josh. Andy believes that his dad is not the guilty party.

Kelly’s book “Miracle Mud” won the 2014 Blue Crab Award that came from the Maryland State Library Association. Amazon chose Kelly’s “The Wrigley Riddle” as one of the best books of the year.
