Descriere

New York Yankees baseball great Joe Di Maggio's longest hitting streak in baseball history is spotlighted in this narrative nonfiction picture book by award-winning author Barb Rosenstock and noted illustrated Terry Widener. In the summer of 1941, Yankee center fielder Joe Di Maggio and his favorite bat, Betsy Ann, begin the longest hitting streak in baseball history. But when Betsy Ann goes missing, will Di Maggio keep hitting? Set on the brink of World War II, this is a spellbinding account of a sports story that united the country and made Di Maggio a hero, at a time when one was profoundly needed. Barb Rosenstock's action-packed text and Terry Widener's powerful illustrations capture Di Maggio's drive as well as his frustration. The book also includes headlines, quotes, stats, and a detailed bibliography.
