On the Bear Creek Ridge team, Aki Mikami is the new girl is who has just returned after being \"sent away to a camp\" with her family since 1942. All the 6th grade girls were too young to remember Aki and her family leaving, and the adults would talk in whispers amongst themselves about what happened, but not to the children. Aki is shy but she is an amazing ball player (her mother was MVP for Bat 6 in 1930) and girls take to her immediately. The opposing Bat 6 team, Barlow, also recruits a talented new player named Shazam—a troubled girl who has come to live with her grandmother. She hates the Japanese because her father was killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor. The ballgame culminates in a catastrophic incident between Shazam and Aki. Told in retrospectives by the girls who make up the two softball teams, the chapters peel back the evolution of the incident which reveals the conflicts in the small community both before and after the war.\n</p><p>Author Virginia Euwer Wolff (1937– ) grew up in Parkdale, Oregon, in the Hood River Valley, an area that drew national press for an <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Hood River incident\">anti-Japanese episode</a> in the early postwar years. At the first <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Days of Remembrance\">Day of Remembrance</a> in Hood River in 2007, she recalled Japanese American friends coming back to school after the war and the community silence about their experiences.<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">[1]</a></sup> She later attended Smith College and lived on the East Coast for nearly two decades before returning to Oregon in 1976, where she taught high school. She has published six books for young people, one of which—<i>True Believer</i>—won the National Book Award for Young People's Literature in 2001. <i>Bat 6</i> also received several awards, including the <a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Jane Addams Children's Book Award</a>.<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref2_2-0\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref2-2\">[2]</a></sup>\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Jan Kamiya\">Jan Kamiya</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Kamiya, Jan</div>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p><i>Bat 6</i> on <a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Virginia Euwer Wolff's website</a>.\n</p><p><i>Bat 6</i> on <a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Scholastic website</a>.\n</p>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Footnotes\">Footnotes</span></h2>\n<div class=\"reflist\" style=\"list-style-type: decimal;\">\n<ol class=\"references\">\n<li id=\"cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\"><span class=\"mw-cite-backlink\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\">↑</a></span> <span class=\"reference-text\">Linda Tamura, <i>Nisei Soldiers Break Their Silence: Coming Home to Hood River</i> (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 2012), 246.</span>\n</li>\n<li id=\"cite_note-ftnt_ref2-2\"><span class=\"mw-cite-backlink\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_ref-ftnt_ref2_2-0\">↑</a></span> <span class=\"reference-text\">Susan Fletcher, Virginia Euwer Wolff (1937–), <i>Oregon Encyclopedia</i>, <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\"></a> and Virginia Euwer Wolff website, <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\"></a>, both accessed on March 26, 2015.</span>\n</li>\n</ol></div>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.124 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.128 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 382/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2487/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 6882/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1416/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 4/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:1552-0!*!0!!*!5!* and timestamp 20180116204233 and revision id 25494\n -->\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
