Home Run: The Story of Babe Ruth

Hardcover (Silver Whistle Aug. 15, 1998) , 1st Edition
Like most boys, he spent his summers playing ball on a dirt lot, but George Herman Ruth, Jr. followed his dreams to become a legend. He is the Babe—Babe Ruth—and baseball is his game.

Powerful oil paintings and spare, dramatic text draw readers into the mind of this larger-than-life sports hero. Reproductions of vintage-style baseball cards throughout the book detail Babe Ruth's career highlights.

Home Run is a compelling portrait of a man, and of a time when baseball was truly America's game.
