What did you like about the book:  This is an awesome series, Ballpark Mysteries, and the author, David A. Kelly is from Massachusetts.  The Triple Play Twins is #17 and here we find cousins, Mike and Kate, in Minneapolis at the Twins ballpark.   Here they meet the  players, Marco and Pedro, known as the triple play twins.  They witness a water balloon attack on the stars and other strange events begin to occur.  The super sleuths with the help of local twins, Polly and Molly, are on the case to find out if someone is messing with the twins chances of making the playoffs.

Dugout Notes are provided in the back of each story to share fun facts and what to expect next…the next baseball mystery coming in 2022 will be Ballpark Mysteries #18.
