|There’ll only be one House That Ruth Built. When you think of Yankee baseball, you think about Babe Ruth, Joe Dimaggio, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle and more recently, Derek Jeter and A-Rod. Michael “Fuji” Powers dreams of one day becoming the next Babe Ruth. He lives in the Bronx and gets selected to play on the Clippers team.Each summer the five boroughs in New York City, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island hold a city tournament where the two winning teams get to play at Yankee Stadium. However, this is the final year the city tournament will be played at old Yankee Stadium. A new Yankee Stadium is being built to replace the House That Ruth Built. Because Yankee baseball is played in the Bronx, Fuji and his fellow teammates are determined to win the city championships to bring the pride of Little League baseball back to the Bronx.In the final inning at old Yankee Stadium with two outs, two runners on base, and the Clippers down by two runs, Fuji steps to the plate for the last at-bat at Yankee Stadium. It is up to him to bring the winning trophy home to the Bronx.
To survive in New York City you have to have a saucy attitude and know how to protect yourself. This is a book that New Yorkers will love because it reflects the pride of New York and its winning tradition in baseball. And the Yankees . . . ya gotta love ‘em!
