    I got to know more about babe ruth

    I liked the book, because I like to play baseball. I think that Babe was the best player at hitting that ever played baseball. For the best player that played baseball had never played baseball until he was 8 years old. I also thought it was funny that ST. Mary didn't have a lefty glove for Babe. I thought it was cool that Babe was nice to the kids. Babe was sent to a public school called ST. Mary. He was showed how to make stuff, so when he left ST. Mary he could get a good job. He was also showed how to play baseball. He became the best baseball player there. Then the owner of the Baltimore Orioles wanted Babe to play on his team when he was only 18 years old. He became the best baseball player in the MLB. He go the new home run record. He became the best baseball player ever. I think who ever likes baseball would like this book . People who like Babe Ruth and wanted to know about his life would really like this book. If you don't like baseball this isn't the book for you. If you don't know who Babe Ruth is you should read this book.
