From the Back Cover
Stosh should have figured that the FBI would find him eventually.
Now they’ve turned up on his doorstep—and they know all about his ability to travel through time using baseball cards. In fact, they want to send him back in time on a mission: to warn President Roosevelt about the attack on Pearl Harbor!
But when Stosh finds out that his “ticket” back to 1941 is a Ted Williams card, he starts planning a mission of his own. Williams is one of the greatest hitters of all time—even though he lost almost five years of his career to serve in the Marines. How many more home runs would the Splendid Splinter have hit if he had those years back? What if Stosh can prevent the attack on Pearl Harbor and convince Williams not to serve in the military?
Sometimes you can change history. Sometimes history can change you.

who like baseball and Ted Williams
this was basically about a kid who travels back in time t o stop the attack on pearl harbor and he runs into Ted Williams. he sees Ted hit 406 then tells him a out the attack on pearl harbor so they drive to Washington to tell the president about this attack on the way Ted meats a girl and they go somewhere else and leave the kid (Joe Stoshack) behind. he Doon gets attacked and has to travel back to his house. after learn a few tips from ted, he hits a walk off homerun in the little league world series.
Joe Stoshack is a young boy from Louisville, Kentucky, with a special power. When he holds a baseball card in his hand, he disappears from the present time and reappears in the year the card was manufactured. In previous books, Joe has met the likes of Babe Ruth, Roberto Clemente, Jackie Robinson, and even Ray Chapman. In the latest installment, Ted & Me, Joe travels back to 1941 to meet Ted Williams. It was not entirely Joe's choice this time, though, as the FBI had discovered his talent and recruited him for this special mission. He was to enlist Williams' help in warning the President of the United States of America about the imminent attack on Pearl Harbor. Joe arrives in Philadelphia in time to see the Hall of Famer play in the last game of the season and secure a .406 batting average.
Gutman does a great job of engaging the reader in the story and keeping it interesting. He keeps you guessing up until the last page whether Joe will be able to accomplish his mission. I won't spoil it for you here, but I will recommend that you read a few of Gutman's other "Baseball Card Adventure" books before tackling Ted & Me. The first book in the series is Honus & Me, featuring the famous T-206 Honus Wagner baseball card. These are light and enjoyable reads, perfect for baseball fans young and old.
