Babe & the Kid: The Legendary Story of Babe Ruth and Johnny Sylvester

The most famous home run in baseball history: “The go-to book for an accurate portrayal of the story” (Sports Collectors Digest).
 
On the eve of game four of the 1926 World Series, Babe Ruth heard that a young New Jersey boy, Johnny Sylvester, was laid up with a deadly illness. Ruth autographed a ball for Johnny, inscribing it, “I’ll knock a homer for you in Wednesday’s game—Babe Ruth.” The rest was history.
 
Ruth delivered on his promise, and Johnny made a miraculous recovery. In Babe & the Kid, author Charlie Poekel traces the story behind the sensational headlines, and follows Johnny’s remarkable life in the aftermath of Ruth’s incredible feat.
