Synopsis

It’s 1932 and everyone is struggling through the Great Depression. When the resourceful young narrator of this story discovers that his father is jobless, he decides to become a newsie. He and his friend Jacob figure out how to sell more papers than the other kids. Many more. Because they’ve got Babe Ruth to help them. Business is soon booming and, thanks to the Babe, they even get a chance to see a Yankees game.
