Summary

Like every other kid in his class, Joe Stoscack has to write a report on an African American who's made an important contribution to society. Unlike every other kid in his class, Joe has a special talent: with the help of old baseball cards, he can travel through time. So for his report, Joe decides to go back to meet one of the greatest baseball players ever, Jackie Robinson, to find out what it was like to be the man who broke baseball's color barrier. Joe plans on writing a prize-winning report. But he doesn't plan on a trip that will for a short time change the color of his skin--and forever change his view of history and his definition of courage.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...

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4^-7. Joe Stoshack discovered his special power to travel back in time using baseball cards in Gutman's Honus and Me (1997). Now Joe has been assigned a report on a famous African American, and what better way to research the subject, Jackie Robinson, than to take a trip back to 1947? But Joe's wish to know what it was like for Robinson lands Joe in Brooklyn as an African American, and he experiences firsthand the racial prejudice and discrimination of the time. Although he fails in his efforts to make his father rich by bringing baseball cards back from the past when he returns, he gains an appreciation of Robinson's courage and strength in breaking baseball's color barrier. Fans will overlook the simplistic treatment of racism and the relative ease with which Joe's mother grants him permission to time travel and simply enjoy the baseball action, which is enhanced by historical photos of Robinson's rookie year. --Karen Hutt"
