A re-imagining of the baseball season of 1927 -- the year Babe Ruth hit 60 home runs and led the Yankees to the American League pennant. The hero, Morrie Ginsberg, pitches for the New York Giants and struggles with his team to win the National League pennant and face the Yankees in the World Series. While the novel follows Ginsberg's exploits, Babe Ruth is also a narrative voice, commenting on the action and revealing his thoughts and emotions.
