Joe Stoshack travels through time using a baseball card to meet its player. In this Baseball Card Adventure book, Joe travels back to 1947 to meet Jackie Robinson. When he shows up, he's not only been transported to Brooklyn, NY, he's black. Joe witnesses the prejudice that Jackie Robinson faced as he joined the Major Leagues and experiences himself the racial attitudes of the day. By the end of his adventures he's learned a trick or two from Jackie Robinson about controlling his temper, when to act out and when not to. With lots of historical fact mixed in with a fun adventure, baseball fans will enjoy this read.
