The boy, George, is a ten year old Yankee fan in 1927. He is a fan of baseball, but unfortunately is an "easy out" when he comes up to bat at the local field with the rest of his friends.
For his birthday, his parents saved money to send him to a Boston Red Socks vs. the Yankees. His uncle sent him a birthday gift of a Red Socks hat and jersey. The book relays the tale of how Babe Ruth ended up with the Yankees in 1919. George is a Yankees/Babe Ruth fan and is mortified to have to wear a Red Socks hat and jersey to the game. He is the only one in the stands in Red Socks gear, but has a connection with The Babe when he steps up to bat.
George and his father have a close encounter with The Babe with a life long lesson imparted by the baseball hero.
The book is beautifully illustrated and has a CD included with Jason Alexander reading the narrative. This is a must have for your baseball fan in your home or school library.
