There is a baseball player named Ryan Ward, who was a senior at Seattle's Crown Hill high school. Ryan starts to practice baseball with him because Josh is a great baseball, and he starts playing baseball again. Ryan likes baseball a lot after practicing it with Josh and getting really good at it.

Carl Deukers Painting the Black follows the miraculous return of Ryan Wards baseball career. Throughout the story, Ryan is very well developed by the author, allowing the readers to really sympathize him and root for him and his recovery. I love the concept for the Painting the Black revolving the emphasis of integrity and morality, however the story itself is pretty hard to get through.

ryan really enjoyed hanging out with josh at first because he was really good at baseball.

As a kid he was a great athlete and the star of every team. Then Ryan climbed all the way to the top and the other kid didn't like it so he left. Ryan was Joshs first friend whence he moved in, and they would play catch every day in the summer and Josh pushed Ryan into being a very good catcher. That got Josh kicked off the baseball team and then they lost the very next game and were out of the tournament. He worked very hard at everything he did and became very good in school and at baseball. Recommendation: I would recommend this book to males of high school age who like baseball and good stories.

The backdrop for this decision is the game of baseball.

You should read the book Painting the Black because it will show you a kids true love for the game of baseball and his sense of integrity. In conclusion, you should read Painting the Black because it makes you feel a love for the game of baseball and makes you want to go outside and play a game of catch with someone. The book also makes you get a feeling of doing the right thing when Ryan turns in Josh.

My favorite character was Ryan, because he was very dedicated to the sport of baseball and he helped out that girl from Josh. I can kind of relate to this book, because I play baseball and I am very dedicated to the sport. This is a really good book for anyone that has challenges in sports like other people making it hard for them to get a varsity spot.

During The Football Season With Josh Being The Quarterback Of The Team, Their Friendship Starts To Get Ruined By One Of Crown Hills Newspaper Writers (Monica). As The Book Progresses, Ryan Starts To Consider Trying Out For Crown Hills Baseball Team.

Josh played football and baseball and Ryan didnt play no sports and Josh asked Ryan to go play catch when they got done getting everything out of the vehicle. Josh told Ryan he should try out for the high school baseball team so he did.

The new kids name is josh and he was a star pitcher back from where he came from and tried to convince Ryan to start playing baseball again. Then baseball season starts and Josh and Ryan are a great combo until something terrible happens .
