Book Description :

From his first year in the majors, George Herman "Babe" Ruth knew he could profit from celebrity. Babe Ruth Cigars in 1915 marked his first attempt to cash in. Traded to the Yankees in 1920, he soon signed with Christy Walsh, baseball's first publicity agent. Walsh realized that stories of great deeds in sports were a commodity, and in 1921 sold Ruth's ghostwritten byline to a newspaper syndicate for $15,000 ($187,000 today). Ruth hit home runs while Walsh's writers made him a hero, crafting his public image as a lovable scalawag. Were the stories true? It didn't matter--they sold. Many survive but have never been scrutinized until now. Drawing on primary sources, this book examines the stories, separating exaggerated facts from clear falsehoods. This book traces Ruth's ascendance as the first great media-created superstar and celebrity product endorser.

Book Description :

On a cold mid-November night in southern Florida, two horses are born at the same time, but they have different destinies. One horse is jet black, strong, and virile; named Black Prince, he grows to be the pride of Farm Jadeville. The other horse born that night is weak, scraggly, and odd-looking. The breeder orders that the foal be thrown into the creek behind the barn, where the alligators can have a feast. Mannie, the son of a worker on the farm, and Jade Aliva, the granddaughter of the farm's owner, rescue the odd, puny horse. They and their friends care for it, train it, and name it Babe Loop. The horse thrives under the children's care, and one day it surprises everyone by breaking into a run when the United States national anthem is played. Keeping this unusual talent a secret, the children and trainer John C. Goodeeds prepare Babe Loop to enter the prestigious National Classic of the Roses, a race which carries a purse of $75,000. Does Babe Loop, the misfit horse, have the tenacity and talent to overcome the popular Black Prince?

Book Description :

A gold medal Olympian, Babe Didrikson was arguably the greatest athlete of the twentieth century, excelling at every sport she tried: running, jumping, javelin throwing, swimming, basketball, golf, and baseball, to name just a few. Gifted and controversial, the Babe's athletic prowess and personality took the country by storm from the 1930s to the 1950s. Following the U.S. Women's soccer team's victory in 1999, Babe was mentioned repeatedly as a sports icon for female athletes everywhere. Her achievements, though vast, were cut short at age forty-three when she died from cancer, but Babe set the bar for every female athlete in her wake and opened the world's eyes to what one empowered woman can achieve! The Babe's biography will inspire young adult readers--embracing the current surge of Girlpower--who resonate with her quest for the American Dream, her efforts to compete in a male world, her battle to overcome discrimination against female athletes, and her struggle with identity. Author Susan Cayleff, whose adult biography of Babe Didrikson was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, now brings Babe's rousing true-life story to young women, for whom she stands as a powerful role model.

Book Description :

Why are Americans obsessed with the home run in sports, business, and even life? What made the steroid era inevitable? Revisiting the great home run seasons of Babe Ruth through those of Barry Bonds, All the Babe's Men answers these and other provocative questions. Baseball, and particularly the long ball itself, evolved via accident, necessity, and occasional subterfuge. During the dead-ball era, pitching ruled the game, and home run totals hovered in the single digits. Then a ban on the spitball and the compression of stadium dimensions set the stage for new sluggers to emerge, culminating in Ruth's historic sixty-homer season in 1927. The players, owners, and fans became hooked on the homer, but our addiction took us to excess. As the home run became the ultimate goal for hitters, players went to new lengths to increase their power and ability to swing for the fences. By the time Barry Bonds set a new single-season record in 2001, Americans had to face the fact that their national pastime had become corrupted from within. Through a play-by-play analysis of the game's historic long-ball seasons, its superstars, and the contemporary legal nightmares and tainted records, All the Babe's Men divulges how America evolved into a home run society where baseball is king.

Book Description :

From Davy Crockett, Wild Bill Hickok, and Calamity Jane to Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, and Frank and Jesse James, here are more than 130 colorful stories of the pioneers, cowboys, outlaws, gamblers, prospectors, and lawmen who settled the wild west, creating a uniquely American hero and an enduringly fascinating folk mythology. In this wonderfully boisterous treasury of tall tales, everyone and everything is larger than life and bragging is elevated into an art form. Many of these stories are of real people and real events; more than a few, however, grew taller and funnier as they made their rounds from wagon train to campfire to rodeo to miners' quarters. But even if it is far from established that Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett were able to kill three men with one bullet or subdue ferocious grizzly bears with their fists, they come vividly to life here as beloved characters who have become part of the fabric of the American imagination.

Book Description :

This book was created from the original title "American Slavery as it is in 1839-Testimony of a Thousand Witnesses" written by Theodore Weld. It was the book that inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe to pen her novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and along with that book, helped ignite the flames of the American Civil War. The first hand, eyewitness accounts in this book both shocked and infuriated many people in the northern free states who knew that slavery was bad...but had no idea just how bad it really was. The Abolitionist movement took off and began to grow with increased pressure being put on our government to end this abomination. The southern slave states bitterly opposed any new laws to remove this blight from our country and the end result was Civil War.

Book Description :

Until 2004, when the Boston Red Sox won their first World Series Championship in 86 years, the team had been plagued by the Curse of the Bambino, a mythical drought attributed to the team’s loss of Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees. Though Ruth was a star pitcher in Boston, he was merely continuing a 14-year tradition of the club’s strong arms and bats. With rosters that included Cy Young, Jimmy Collins, Jesse Burkett, Jack Chesbro, Big Bill Dinneen, Smoky Joe Wood and Tris Speaker, among others, the young franchise powered its way to three pennants and a couple of world championships before Babe arrived in Beantown. This book covers the team’s early years from the diamond to the executive offices.

Book Description :

Nineteen-twenty was a crucial year not just for the Chicago White Sox but for the game of baseball, in the aftermath of the 1919 World Series scandal. This work is both a collective biography of four individuals whose careers in baseball were forever altered in 1920 and an examination of the 1920 baseball season as a whole. It highlights four legendary personalities--Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, the longtime commissioner of Major League Baseball; Babe Ruth, the great pitcher and slugger who changed the game forever; Buck Weaver, the true lone innocent among the Black Sox players who threw the 1919 World Series; and Rube Foster, the fine pitcher, imaginative manager, and great administrator of blackball who founded the Negro National League. Key events that affected the season and the history of baseball are discussed. Nineteen-twenty was the year that Ruth shattered his own home run record and began a hitting spree that brought in record numbers of fans to the ballparks. It was the year that Rube found a way for large numbers of African-Americans to play the game meaningfully, before loyal crowds, despite Jim Crow laws that kept them out of the majors and minors.
