- Yang, Dori Jones. The Forbidden Temptation of Baseball. Tempe: SparkPress, 2017. Two young men of the Chinese Educational Mission of 1876 face challenges and find delight as they adjust to the United States – and its favorite pastime.
Exposition-heavy but highly informative.
- Yolen, Jane. Moonball. Illustrated by Greg Couch. New York: Simon & Schuster, 1999. A frustrated young ballplayer dreams about playing baseball with literal stars.
Couch's dreamy illustrations are the highlight of this well-done fantasy.
