At the start of the 1941 baseball season, neither Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees nor Ted Williams of the Boston Red Sox were beloved by baseball fans. But all that soon changed with DiMaggioís 56 game hitting streak and Williamsí impressive .400 batting average.  Baseball appeals to all ages and genders and whether you are a Yankee Fan or a Red Sox Fan, you canít help but admire the winning spirit and work ethic of these two baseball legends. This book reads as if it were a conversation between the reader and an avid baseball fan as he alternates between the amazing summers of Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams  and the our joy and love of the game.  Play ball!  (Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
