Have you ever thought about what the world might be like in the future? No one knows exactly what the future holds, but the authors of this book have done some research and talked to scientists, engineers, and 'futurists' to create a view of tomorrow. From a computer that translates a dog's barks and body movements into words to 'talk' to its owner to broccoli spears that taste like French fries to eco-friendly cars that drive themselves, this book paints an interesting picture of what life might be like for kids in the future. How old will you be in 2030? Grab this book, settle in, and take a trip to 2030.

Joe Stoshack has a unique ability. Just by holding an old baseball card, he will travel back to the player's time and place. He has already visited many baseball greats, such as Honus Wagner, Jackie Robinson and Babe Ruth. Stosh is up to his old tricks. Despite his mother's request that he go on no more baseball card trips, he is determined to travel back in time to find out if Abner Doubleday really did invent baseball. The only problem is that there is no baseball card depicting Doubleday. Stosh sends away for a photograph, hoping that will work. When the photograph arrives, his mother sees it, realizes what Stosh is up to, and insists on going with him. They find they have gotten more than they bargained for, when they land on the Gettysburg battlefield. Scenes from the battle and the army hospitals are graphically described, as Stosh learns that there is nothing romantic about war, and his mother's skills as a nurse are called upon. As it turns out, Abner Doubleday was a Civil War general, who was unfairly blamed for his troops' desertion at Gettysburg. He is very impressed by Stosh's mother's 21st century techniques. But, did Abner Doubleday really invent baseball?

Joe is fascinated with the legend of how Babe Ruth called his shot before hitting a home run in game three of the 1932 World Series. Could a player be confident enough to be able to predict not only his home run, but also where it would fly? No one knows what really happened that day. Joe wants to find out, but unlike millions of other baseball fans, who have to live with the uncertainty, Joe has the power to travel back through time to see the game. Can Joe solve the mystery, return home safely, and possibly improve his own game in the meantime? Reproductions of photographs from Babe Ruth's life add depth to the descriptions of events, and the book concludes with a note separating the historical fact from fiction.
