Something magical happens whenever Joe Stoshack holds a baseball card. His hand starts to tingle. And if the card is old enough - like the rare 1932 Babe Ruth card his father gives him for his 12th birthday - Joe can travel back in time! One of baseball's greatest mysteries is whether or not the Babe actually called his fifth-inning home run in the third game of the 1932 World Series against the Cubs. With Joe's time-traveling talent and his new card, he can solve that mystery once and for all. But when Joe and his father travel back to the heart of the Depression, they find more than the answer to a baseball mystery. They learn how important it is for a father and son to really know each other.
Babe and Me is a magical mixture of baseball, history, and family adventure. Johnny Heller's thrilling play-by-play narration takes listeners to the golden era of Babe and the Yankee greats.
