Storyline

Bogg and Jeffrey rescue Cleopatra when her life was in danger. They take her with them accidentally when they leave and they land in the 1920's where she decides to stay. She gets away from them and assimilates. Later they discover Yankee Stadium--the house that Ruth built is not there because Ruth didn't play for the Yankees. So they go back when he was still a pitcher and a prima donna. They try to get him to switch from pitcher to hitter. When they succeed they return to look for Cleopatra whom they discover has fallen in with Lucky Luciano and is using her to keep Ruth from hitting his 60th home run. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Phineas Bogg: You're tougher to please than Abner Doubleday.
Jeffrey Jones: You were there when Abner Doubleday invented baseball?
