Summary
With his ability to travel through time by using baseball cards, Joe goes back to 1947 to meet Jackie Robinson, turning into a black boy in the process. Joe Stoshack has really done it this time. When a pitcher insults his Polish heritage, Joe flings his bat and prompts an on-field brawl that ends in a two-team pileup. He's suspended from Little League ... indefinitely. At school, his teacher assigns an oral report for Black History Month. The topic? An African-American who has made a significant contribution to American society. The prize for the best report is four tickets to a cool local amusement park. But Joe doesn't know where to begin. If he could just get his hands on a certain Jackie Robinson baseball card ... Fans of Dan Gutman's hit novel Honus & Me already know that Joe has the remarkable ability to travel through time -- with baseball cards! Now he's bound for Brooklyn circa 1947, to meet one of the greatest ballplayers of all time, the man single-handedly responsible for breaking "the color barrier" in the major leagues. If getting up close and personal with Jackie Robinson isn't a sure way to ace his report for Black History Month, what is? What Joe can't predict is that his journey will not only change the color of his skin for a time, it will alter his view of history -- and his definition of courage
