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. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassie | 2/16/2014

    " This is a fun story for reluctant readers or any child that loves baseball. It's a great book full of historical details about the 1932 World Series, Babe Ruth, the Great Depression, the Holocaust, and Theodore Roosevelt. The dialogue and setting painted a realistic picture of 1932. I really appreciated that at the end of the book, the author told us what was factual and where he took liberties concerning historical events. I love baseball, and I really enjoyed this story. I especially loved the inclusion of historical pictures that the story was built around. They added an authenticity to the story that really made it come alive. "
