Skippy and Connor don't like each other. In fact, each of them wants a new roommate because the other is too "different." Stuck in the hospital with serious illnesses, the boys get a surprise visit from Ray, a Yankee batboy who whisks them away on a magical journey back in time to meet the legendary Babe Ruth. The adventure doesn't stop there, as the Bambino takes them to see baseball hero Jackie Robinson play at Ebbets Field. Along the way, the Babe and Jackie share some unforgettable lessons with their young friends about baseball, friendship, and accepting others' differences.
Ray Negron and Laura Seeley, the New York Times bestselling team from the boy of steel, have hit another home run with The Greatest Story Never Told: The Babe and Jackie, a touching story inspired by real events related to Ray by Babe Ruth's granddaughter.
