Jerry Amernic con BABE RUTH - A Superstar's Legacy (English Edition)'Babe Ruth - A Superstar's Legacy' by Jerry Amernic explores the legacy of Babe Ruth on many different fronts, both in and beyond baseball. It involves sport, culture, business, the arts, and in no small dose, humanity. This is unlike any book ever written about the remarkable icon who captured America and the world, and is a testament to his enduring appeal. Babe Ruth's grandson Tom Stevens wrote the Foreword and the Ruth family has contributed photographs. The author's acclaimed baseball novel 'Gift of the Bambino,' which is about a young boy and his grandfather and how the two are bound by baseball and the spirit of Babe Ruth, first got Amernic into the Ruth orbit. And he has never left.
