Good book about baseball and one of the founding fathers of the game. Babe Ruth changed the game forever and will always be referred to as the best player ever. This book offers great illustrations of certain important moments in Ruth's career and enhance the text. ( )

This book was about the start of Babe Ruth's baseball career. How he started with the Boston Red Sox as a pitcher and then switched to hitting. He made a record for 29 homeruns! Later on he went to be with the Yankees, they opened a new stadium and sort of made a nickname of the stadium after him. While playing for the Yankees he signed baseballs and hid them all over the city for children. He was the first player to hit a home run at the new stadium. The story ends talking about how he was the first player to be inducted into the Baseball Hall Of Fame. I really enjoy baseball, so this book was enlightening for me. ( )

The entire country does not want to play or watch baseball anymore, and Babe Ruth has to win the fans back to save baseball. A great read, set in the depression (great for a history minilesson), also a great tactic to get boys who do not want to read to actually find something interesting in it because it is about baseball.

It’s 1919 and baseball is in trouble! All across the country, people don’t want to play it or watch it anymore. It’s up to Babe Ruth to win back fans and save baseball! Can he do it?

The illustrations were done in a fun style, and the story was generally about Babe Ruth and the beginnings of baseball and how he saved the sport from diminishing due to fans disillusionment after finding some serious cheating done by a team. It was set during the depression and showed how Babe Ruth got the fans rallying again when he made a bet that he would get 50 homeruns in a year. It would be a great story for those kids who are big fans of sports and have a difficulty getting interested in reading (I have a nephew who fits this description….). ( )
