Joe is fascinated with the legend of how Babe Ruth called his shot before hitting a home run in game three of the 1932 World Series. Could a player be confident enough to be able to predict not only his home run, but also where it would fly? No one knows what really happened that day. Joe wants to find out, but unlike millions of other baseball fans, who have to live with the uncertainty, Joe has the power to travel back through time to see the game. Can Joe solve the mystery, return home safely, and possibly improve his own game in the meantime? Reproductions of photographs from Babe Ruth's life add depth to the descriptions of events, and the book concludes with a note separating the historical fact from fiction.

Young Babe Ruth could hit harder and run faster than any kid in Baltimore! But keeping out of trouble is a little difficult for Babe. In this book, you'll get a glimpse of what George(Babe) Ruth was like as a child. Loosing his friend's baseball when he hits it through a kitchen window, taking a dollar out of his father's tavern, and spending money that is not his own, are just some of the antics that have his parents wondering ,'What will become of our Babe?' This story will really hit a HOME RUN with the beginning reader!
