About This Book
Exciting Biography of a Larger-Than-Life Legend!
Little-known stories about baseball's big hitter make fascinating reading for sports fans!
Babe Ruth came from a poor Baltimore family and, as a kid, he was pure trouble! It was at a reform school that Babe discovered his talent for baseball. By the age of 19, he was on his way from juvenile delinquency to becoming an all-time sports legend. Babe was often out of shape — and even more often out on the town — but he had a big heart and an even bigger swing! Readers will learn all about Ruth in this rags-to-riches sports biography. Nostalgic black-and-white illustrations throughout help bring a true sports legend back to life.
