ABOUT THE BASEBALL CARD
ADVENTURE SERIES

With more than 2 million copies sold, the Baseball Card Adventures series hits it out of the park. Twelve-year-old Joe “Stosh” Stoshack loves baseball and knows almost everything about the sport. But there are some things you just have to see with your own eyes. So when Stosh discovers he has the power to travel through time using a baseball card as his time machine, he sets off to meet some of the greatest baseball players of all time.

From Babe Ruth’s “called shot” in the 1932 World Series to Shoeless Joe Jackson’s role in the Black Sox Scandal, Stosh goes on a series of dangerous missions to solve baseball’s biggest mysteries, right wrongs, and even save lives.
