Babe's father George decided that something had to be done with him and put him on a trolley car, a car headed for a mysterious destination. Babe may have been surprised to learn that his father was going to abandon him at the St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys. Unbeknownst to anyone, this "reform school" was probably one of the best things that ever happened to him. Babe's initial anger, fear, and tears soon gave into joy when he met someone who would care for him and turn his life around. That someone was "a big, strong guy, about six and a half feet tall" named Brother Matthias.
Babe Ruth never let go of his mischievous ways, but Brother Matthias believed in him and "tried to help him become a good person." St. Mary's was his home and Brother Matthias was like a father to him, but when he was nineteen it was time to go out into the world. Babe was a simple man, one who would never try to be something he was not. Even when Jack Dunn, the "owner of the Baltimore Orioles," signed him to the team, he carried his mischievous streak right along with him.Read more ›
I also read these to him in the evenings and I really enjoy them as a 40 year old father. I have learned so much from them as well. Sometimes I read them before or after my son in order to have an educated discussion with him about the subject of the book. I really also get alot out of them as well.
