First there was The Kid Who Only Hit Homers. Then came The Return of the Home Run Kid and Comeback of the Home Run Kid. And now, the mystery continues!
It's happening again . . .
Home run slugger Sylvester Coddmyer the Third has an amazing secret. For three seasons, he's been coached by men who look exactly like baseball legends Babe Ruth, Eddie Cicotte, and Mickey Mantle. Are these men actors impersonating famous ballplayers, as his friend Duane insists? Or are they from the "beyond," as Snooky Malone believes? Whatever the truth, the mystery deepens in this fourth title of this exciting series -- for yet another character from baseball's past has appeared to coach Syl. But is Syl the only one getting pointers?
In this latest installment of the Home Run Kid series, the main character meets another baseball great, but this time, he must come to terms with his feelings for an infamous baseball legend--Ty Cobb.
