When the legendary Babe Ruth strode to the plate in Game 3 of the 1932 World Series, the game was tied 4-4 in the fifth inning. After taking two strikes, Ruth cemented his place in baseball history. He first pointed toward the outfield, and then slammed a monster home run on the very next pitch. It is a moment that has lived in baseball lore ever since. In this graphic novel, readers will get an up-close look at one of baseball's most iconic moments and learn about the controversy surrounding the truth of Babe Ruth's famous called-shot homer.
