    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I liked this book a lot and it kind of shows how sports have changed over the years The book begins with George Babe Ruth always getting into trouble with the police and having to go to a special police station for younger middle school kids After a while of getting in trouble his parents send him to a school for kids like him and that is where he learns what baseball is and he loves it That is all I will say about the beginning because if you haven t read it I would not want to spoil it M I liked this book a lot and it kind of shows how sports have changed over the years The book begins with George Babe Ruth always getting into trouble with the police and having to go to a special police station for younger middle school kids After a while of getting in trouble his parents send him to a school for kids like him and that is where he learns what baseball is and he loves it That is all I will say about the beginning because if you haven t read it I would not want to spoil it My favorite characters are Babe Ruth his parents the police because they are kind of funny and his friends at his school One problem George faced is that he only played baseball for a small school team and nobody would recognize him The problem gets solved but you ll have to read about it to figure out how.This book reminded me of me because I love sports but I know that no one will recognize it because Grantsville isn t that big but also I get into trouble sometimes but that is okay as long as it isn t bad enough for the police to come My favorite part of the story is when the Red Socks kick him off the team then the Yankees pick him up and he does really well and the Red Socks regretted their choice I just like how he went from being a naughty little kid getting in trouble to being a big strong really good baseball player I just think it is really cool I think it was a great book and if you are looking for a good sports or history book to read this would be the one It was a pretty easy book to read so if you like reading big long books I would not recommend it for you unless you just want a quick easy book to read Other than that though it was a really good book and it is really interesting It also teaches you Babe Ruth s life while being a great sports book I just think it is great all around and i recommend it to anyone

    This was a very good book It is a quick read about the life of Babe Ruth before and even after his major league days It was very fascinating learning about how Babe wasn t always the national star he rose to be As a child he would often get into lots of trouble His parents eventually became so fed up with his nonsense that they sent him to a reform school at only the age of 7 St Mary s Industrial School for boys Babe would go on to spend the next 12 years of his life inside the walls of This was a very good book It is a quick read about the life of Babe Ruth before and even after his major league days It was very fascinating learning about how Babe wasn t always the national star he rose to be As a child he would often get into lots of trouble His parents eventually became so fed up with his nonsense that they sent him to a reform school at only the age of 7 St Mary s Industrial School for boys Babe would go on to spend the next 12 years of his life inside the walls of St Mary s It seems like it s going to be an awful ending for him, until he learns about baseball He was taught everything he knew at this school and later on went pro Although, it wasn t as easy as it seems He went through a lot of tough times to get to the point he reached, with unbelievable determination and hard work Read this book to find outabout Ruth s crazy life I would recommend this book to anyone that loves sports and historical fiction

    Look I read a book It was about the Babe And this particular babe had no ruth when on the field hitting against an opposing team He had no ruth at all He was outright ruthless Which is hopefully a thing of irony, given his last name Why did I read this book The same reason I read past tense most of my books because it was there at the same time I was And it was being unused at the same time I was unoccupied Yankees win


  7. Ethan McMillen Ethan McMillen says:

    In my opinion this want the greatest book, but I did really like the begging but towards the end of the book it just got kinds boring and it was basically just numbers and how he did of this and that but all adoring I hive this book a 3 star rating.


  8. Caroline Caroline says:

    This book was a good story through Babe Ruth s life but I must say this book got quite boring even with all his adventures I d recommend this to people who enjoy baseball or other sports and people who enjoy reading about people from the past I will most likely read this book again.


  9. Randy Grossman Randy Grossman says:

    It was a pretty quick and easy read It was written on the level of probably 10 to 16 year old youngsters, but still had a lot of interesting stories and facts about Babe Ruth Some of the history was new to me I would recommend it to baseball fans for sure.
