The Things He Could Have Been: Stories of BABE RUTH
W. Nikola-Lisa tackles the Babe Ruth story in yet another book for the young adult reader. In his latest book, The Things He Could Have Been, the author pulls back the curtain on Ruth's off-the-field shenanigans, offering the reader a humorous, yet highly informative, portrayal of the Yankee slugger. Ruth was multi-talented and could have been many things, i.e., professional golfer, heavyweight boxer, movie star, football player, just to name a few of his interests. Of course, this is all tongue-in-cheek: everyone knows that George Herman "Babe" Ruth was a baseball player, perhaps the greatest baseball player of all time.
