Excellent photos, difficult for a 10 year old, but dedicated to young boys. What better way than in his own words. This is a book he'll probably pick up later. It's out of print, so it will be hard to find.

Babe Ruth is the most amazing athlete of the 20th Century. What kind of records would he have set if he knew it was so important? His only drug use was beer, and the nitrates in the hotdogs. Wow! What a guy!.

4 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on February 1, 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a book about a legend. He more than any other player changed the game and made it America's national pasttime. After being the greatest pitcher of his time for Boston he was traded to the Yankees where he went on to begin making the home run synonymous with his name. In the house that Ruth built' Yankee Stadium along with Lou Gehrig he lead the Yankees of the 1920's to a string of pennants and World Series. Both on and off the field the Babe was outsized, and seemed to be unstoppable. He was the greatest player the game ever had and probably ever will have. He was in some sense a babe all his life, childlike and uncontrollable but he was also famous for acts of kindness, including the famous homerun hit on request by a young fan fatally ill. His love of the game and his love of life are now apart of America's legendary heritage.
