Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Bill Jenkinson's previous book, THE YEAR BABE RUTH HIT 104 HOME RUNS: "This fascinating, in-depth study (based on 28 years of research!) argues that Ruth hit baseballs farther than any man in the game—ever." —Playboy "In a fresh perspective on Ruth's position in the pantheon of sport and American heroes, we are spared 'gee-whiz' adulation and presented with meticulous research that stands on its own." —Denver Post "Here we have the carefully researched, imaginatively argued contrary position. Great reading for any baseball fan, but especially those whose passions are ignited by comparisons of players from different eras." —Booklist "All baseball fans know that Ruth was one of the greatest and most beloved ballplayers of all time, and this work of incredible research explains in great detail his dominance of the game." —Cal Ripken, Jr. "Comparisons of athletes from different eras are always fraught with difficulty—different rules, equipment, nutrition, and training to name a few. Since baseball is very much a game of statistics, this is particularly true of its players. Nonetheless, Bill Jenkinson's impeccably researched book effectively makes these comparisons, leaving little doubt as to whom was the best of the best. We consider The Year Babe Ruth Hit 104 Home Runs a must read for any fan of the Babe or baseball." —Julia Ruth Stevens and Tom Stevens, daughter and grandson of Babe Ruth
