Overview

Greg Patterson just watched his beloved Boston Red Sox lose to the New York Yankees in the 2003 American League Championship Series when he gets a radical idea: Build a time machine to make sure that one of baseball history's worst sales -- the sale of Babe Ruth -- never happens. But as he's researching out that fateful event, he runs along another piece of information that he had never known.

It leads him to ask: What if the Black Sox Scandal never happened? Could the scandal that rocked the baseball world in the early 1920s and the sale of the Sultan of Swat be connected? And if it’s possible, can these two incidents be reversed in order to correct the failings of the Red Sox and end the recent domination of the Yankees?

Greg and his friend Brandon Roy build the time machine and immediately head back to 1919, where they meet Harry Frazee, Shoeless Joe Jackson, Buck Weaver, Charlie Comiskey, and the catalyst of the whole thing, Babe Ruth. Greg also falls in love in the past, making for an exciting conclusion to their time in 1919 Boston.

If you're a fan of baseball and baseball history, this is a book you'll want in your Nook's memory bank. A great story that will stand the test of time. And you won't look at baseball history the same way, either.

Editorial Reviews

Matt O'Donnell
John Fitch V has written several fantasy books and Turning Back the Clock is his first book about the Red Sox. The book begins with Grady Little's failure to take Pedro out of the game in 2003. The post game depression leads the main character to come up with a plan to go back in time and change the Red Sox fortunes by trying to keep Babe Ruth from going to the Yankees and keep Joe Jackson out of the 1919 World Series fix.

Born in the city of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, in 1977, Fitch's love of fantasy began 11 years later when he was handed J.R.R. Tolkien's classic The Hobbit. His passion for writing began in 1993, as a sophomore in high school, when he began to write sports for his local newspaper, the Sentinel & Enterprise. Since then, he has written for several Massachusetts newspapers, including the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester and the Southbridge Evening News in Southbridge. He has since returned to where it all started, as he came back to the Sentinel in April 2008.
