There have been some moments in the history of baseball that are the stuff of legends. This book includes five such stories. There is Babe Ruth pointing to the stands where his homerun ball will land. There is Joe DiMaggio hitting in 56 consecutive games. There is the courage of Jackie Robinson taking the field as the first African American player in the major leagues. Roberto Clemente, Puerto Rican hero, hits his 3,000th hit just before his plane goes down. Hank Aaron hits his 715th home run to be the all-time home run king of baseball. The stories are all true.
