Advance Praise for Did Babe Ruth Call His Shot?
"Aron has found the Rosetta stone to all of baseball's enduring mysteries, and he skips it along the pond with utter disregard for the ducks. His fortunate readers will have so much fun they may not even notice that they are becoming, page by page, real experts. Here is surefire water-cooler ammo."
—JOHN THORN, editor of Total Baseball
"Paul Aron puts a distant replay on the most famous controversies in baseball history. This is more fun than if he'd been there with a camcorder."
—ALLEN BARRA, author of Clearing the Bases and Brushbacks and Knockdowns
