Babe & Me (HarperCollins, 2000)
If you liked “Honus & Me” and “Jackie & Me”, you’ll love this. Joe time-travels back to 1932 to see with his own eyes whether or not Babe Ruth really called his shot in Game 3 of the World Series.
Shoeless Joe & Me (HarperCollins, 2002)
The fourth book in my baseball card adventure series. This time, Stosh travels back in time to 1919 in an effort to prevent the Black Sox Scandal and save the reputation of the great Shoeless Joe Jackson. Along the way, he meets a long lost relative and is hunted down by murderous gangsters.
Mickey & Me (HarperCollins, 2003)
The fifth book in my baseball card adventure series. Stosh THINKS he will be going on an adventure with Mickey Mantle. But he’s in for a big surprise. The surprise is…oh, go read the book and find out for yourself. As usual, Stosh will encounter the unexpected, be humiliated, almost get killed, and learn a valuable life lesson.
Abner & Me (HarperCollins, 2005)
The sixth book in my baseball card adventure series. Did Abner Doubleday really invent baseball, or is that just a myth? Stosh decides to go back in time to and find out–with his mother! They land in the middle of a Civil War battlefield, where they will eventually meet up with Union general Abner Doubleday (after almost getting killed a few times). Stosh’s mom, excited about the possibility of time travel, convinces Stosh to try and stop the Lincoln assassination. Don’t worry, there’s some baseball in here too.
Satch & Me (HarperCollins, 2006)
The seventh book in the baseball card adventure series. Stosh decides to try and find out who was the fastest pitcher in baseball history. So he takes a radar gun back to 1942 and (as usual) some lunatic tries to kill him. He also learns what life was like for African American ballplayers before the “color barrier” was broken. Stosh’s Little League coach Flip Valentini is along for the ride this time.
Jim & Me (HarperCollins, 2008)
The eighth book in the baseball card adventure series. This time Stosh is going to travel back to the year 1913–with his arch enemy Bobby Fuller! They are on a mission to track down the legendary Jim Thorpe and help him regain his Olympic glory. Most people don’t know that Jim Thorpe played major league baseball, but after he won two gold medals at the 1912 Olympics, he was a member of The New York Giants, the team of Christy Mathewson and John McGraw.
Ray & Me (HarperCollins, 2009)
The ninth book in the baseball card adventure series. One day in 1920, Ray Chapman of the Cleveland Indians became the only player in major league history to get hit by a pitched ball…and die. Stosh decides to go back in time and try to save Chapman’s life.
Roberto & Me (HarperCollins, 2010)
I can hardly believe that this is the tenth baseball card adventure. Stosh wants to save Roberto Clemente’s life, but lands in the middle of Woodstock in 1969. He has to get to Cincinnati that night, where the Pirates are playing. After apparently convincing Roberto not to get on the plane that will kill him, Stosh finds that he has a second, equally important mission to accomplish. This time, for the first time, Stosh will travel into the future.
Ted & Me (HarperCollins, 2012)
Number 11 in the baseball card adventure series. The FBI has found out about Stosh’s power to travel through time with baseball cards, and they have assigned him to go back to 1941 to warn President Roosevelt about the attack on Pearl Harbor. Stosh will get some help–from the immortal Ted Williams. “Ted & Me” is actually my 100th book, because it comes out before several of the My Weirder School books below.
Willie & Me
Number 12 in the baseball card adventure series. Stosh thought he was finished traveling back in time. But then Ralph Branca shows up in his room one night, begging for Stosh’s help. In 1951, Branca pitched a ball to Bobby Thomson that would become the “Shot Heard Round the World,” a home run that won the National League pennant for the New York Giants and changed the lives of Branca and Thomson forever. Branca says the Giants were cheating, and he needs Stosh to use his power with baseball cards to go back in time and set things right.
Stosh is determined to help, but he quickly learns that you can’t change just one little thing in history. If he erases the Shot Heard Round the World, he may forever alter the life of a young rookie named Willie Mays. With wisdom from all the players he has helped before—plus the surprise return of some familiar faces—Stosh uses his power to travel in time using baseball cards one last time in a fabulous finale to the adventure of a lifetime.
