One of the reasons that we let Mr. Kelly write the BALLPARK MYSTERIES books is that he wrote this really cool book about Babe Ruth.
It tells how the Boston Red Sox won 5 of the first 15 World Series and were a great team UNTIL they traded Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees. After that, the Yankees won World Series after World Series, and the Red Sox couldn’t win any! That’s what they call the “Curse of the Bambino.” But–Red Sox fans can cheer here–the book also tells the incredible story of the 2004 Red Sox and how they FINALLY won the world Series.
Anyway, I just came across a great review of BABE RUTH AND THE BASEBALL CURSE, and an interview with Mr. Kelly that includes information on the BALLPARK MYSTERIES!
