W. Nikola-Lisa tackles the Babe Ruth story in yet another book for the young adult reader. In Dear Frank: Babe Ruth, the Red Sox, and the Great War, the author presents left-handed Babe Ruth pitching for the Boston Red Sox as the First World War winds down. In The Men Who Made the Yankees, the author takes us behind the scenes as the new American League franchise in upper Manhattan (originally called the Hilltop Highlanders, later the New York Yankees), win their first World Series title behind the hard-hitting Babe Ruth, now playing regularly in the outfield. 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.
