Description

    • Imported from USA.

    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.
