Description

In the summer of 1941, Yankee center fielder Joe DiMaggio and his favorite bat, Betsy Ann, begin the longest hitting
streak in baseball history. But when Betsy Ann goes missing, will DiMaggio 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 DiMaggio a hero, at a time when
one was profoundly needed. Barb Rosenstock’s action-packed text and Terry Widener’s powerful illustrations capture
DiMaggio’s drive as well as his frustration. The book also includes headlines, quotes, stats, and a detailed
bibliography.
