On October 1, 1932, during Game Three of the Chicago Cubs/New York Yankees World Series, Babe Ruth belted a long home run to straightaway center field. According to legend, just before he hit, Babe pointed to the center field bleachers and boldly predicted he would slam the next pitch there. Did he call that shot, or didn't he? Witnesses never agreed. Joe Stoshack knows there's one way to solve the mystery — slip back seventy years and see for himself.
As fans of Dan Gutman's acclaimed novels Honus & Me and Jackie & Me know, Joe has the astonishing ability to travel through time — with baseball cards! Now he's bound for Chicago's Wrigley Field by way of Depression-era New York. Only this time his dad — who doesn't spend a lot of time with Joe in the present, never mind the past — is along for the trip. Joe has waited a long time for his father to take him to a big league game, but he never dreamed it could be this one!
