|Stosh thinks he's going to see Mickey Mantle. But at the last possible instant, his annoying cousin substitutes a DIFFERENT baseball card, and Stosh finds himself in 1942, playing for the Milwaukee Chicks of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Used by permission of Dan Gutman.|
When Joe Stoshack's dad ends up in the hospital after a car accident, he has two words to say to his son: Mickey Mantle. For Stosh has a special power—with a baseball card in hand, he can travel back in time. And his dad has a rare card—Mantle's valuable 1951 rookie card. "I've been thinking about it for a long time. Go back to 1951. You're the only one who can do it," Dad whispers.
That night Stosh grips the card and prepares for another magical adventure. But when he opens his eyes, he's not in Yankee Stadium—he's in Milwaukee on June 8, 1944. And how he wound up there is not half as surprising as what he finds!---from the publisher
