Thirteen-year-old Joe Stoshack can travel through time simply by holding a baseball card from the year he wishes to visit. When he learns of the scandal of the 1919 World Series, and how Chicago White Sox star Joe Jackson was wrongfully implicated in the plot, Stosh decides to travel to 1919 Cincinnati to help the illiterate outfielder avoid shame and disgrace. Facing ruthless mobsters and a deadly influenza epidemic, Stosh learns some real lessons about how life isn't always fair. Johnny Heller's reading is youthful and precise, hitting home without grandstanding as he gives historical details in an aura of wonderment, as well as honest believability. S.E.S.
