Overview

Stosh should have figured that the FBI would find him eventually.

Now they’ve turned up on his doorstep—and they know all about his ability to travel through time using baseball cards. In fact, they want to send him back in time on a mission: to warn President Roosevelt about the attack on Pearl Harbor!

But when Stosh finds out that his “ticket” back to 1941 is a Ted Williams card, he starts planning a mission of his own. Williams is one of the greatest hitters of all time—even though he lost almost five years of his career to serve in the Marines. How many more home runs would the Splendid Splinter have hit if he had those years back? What if Stosh can prevent the attack on Pearl Harbor and convince Williams not to serve in the military?

Sometimes you can change history. Sometimes history can change you.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
Joe Stoshack (Stosh) is a young teenager and baseball player who possesses an unusual ability: when he holds a baseball card in his hand, he can travel in time to the date of the card. The FBI finds out about his ability and asks him to undertake a mission. Using a 1941 Ted Williams baseball card, Stosh's job is to find Williams and convince him to warn President Roosevelt about Pearl Harbor. Stosh agrees, realizing that if he changes history, he may be able to prevent Williams from enlisting in the military and thereby reclaim some of the slugger's best years as a baseball player—and create brand-new baseball records in the process. Time-travel books require suspension of belief and this one is no exception, but it is worth the trip. The characters are genuine. Heroes don't always act like heroes; what looks like good advice often isn't; saying someone is a jerk doesn't make it so; and being an American does not mean you are always right. Stosh quickly finds out that he needs to think for himself as he deals with the complex personality of Williams and confronts Charles Lindbergh's anti-Semitism and anti-war sentiment. The baseball stories, and the retelling of many episodes from Williams' life, are thrilling. The book includes a note to readers, an introduction, a section on fact and fiction, a bibliography and a chart of Williams' statistics. Better editing could have eliminated some minor problems (e.g., subject and tense shifts). But if the rest of the author's "Baseball Card Adventure" books are as good as this one, baseball fans will want to get them all. There's a lot to like about this book, and the ending will have kids asking their parents questions that start with, "What if?" Reviewer: Leona Illig
ALA Booklist Online
“Another winner in a series that effectively blends fast-paced storytelling with plenty of baseball lore.”

    Hola.

    Ted Williams is the best
    He so much better than the rest
    He was a real great
    But people had to hate
    And Ted wasnt the best to the rest

    Stosh soon came came to town
    When Ted was feeling a bit down
    He gave him a warning
    And they left next morning
    Off in the car they left the old town

    Before the bombs dropped
    Ted and stosh suddenly stopped
    They thought, hes a jew
    What should he do?
    And Stoshs journey had quicky been stopped

    This book is very good for kids no matter what kind of sport they like. Your kid can be a diehard football fan but he will still enjoy this book even though it is centered around baseball. The reader can really put themselves in the main characters shoes by how to solve the problem and what they would do if they went back in time to meet someone they had never met them and do something very hard. This book starts out in the 2000's and Joe (the main character) has been caught by the FBI that they know that whenever he touches a baseball card he goes back in time to when that card was made. So they wanna send him back to the 1940's and warn President Roosevelt about Pearl Harbor. It is a great book and you are going to have to read it to find out the rest.
