Publisher Summary
No one knew better than Shoeless Joe Jackson what was needed to become the best baseball player ever: a good bat. And no one knew more about bats than Ol' Charlie Ferguson of South Carolina, a good friend of Joe's. With love, nurture, and a lot of hard work, the two friends created Black Betsy -- the finest bat in all the land. And with a bat the likes of her by his side, you can bet Joe went all the way to the major leagues!

Shoeless Joe Jackson, said by some to be the greatest baseball player ever, goes into a hitting slump just before he starts his minor league career, so he asks his friend to make him a special bat to help him hit.
