- Publisher's Summary:
The legend lives on in this true-to-life look at Babe Ruth-the man who changed the game of baseball forever. 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.
