    never give up until the end

    This book is called I live for this by Bill Plaschke. The story is about a famous die hard dodger and hall of fame person that talks about his life in the present and past. This man is the last true believer Tommy Lasorda. Tommy was born in Italy and was an unfortunate family and him and his brothers loved baseball. So whenever there was a game at the park they would try to steal all the baseball equipment they can because they couldn¿t afford to buy it. At a young age Tommy and his family left Italy to go to the United States so that they can get better jobs and education. Once Tommy was in high school he maid the baseball team but briefly got playing time. Then one day his dream came true he will be playing in the professionals. Once he was in the MLB he wanted to be a dodger and in a few years it came true he became a dodger. But he had problems and didn¿t have a successful career. So he became the manager of the dodgers and won two World Series and the 2000 Olympics. But it toke a lot of hard work to get there. I as a baseball fan and a dodger fan I really enjoyed it. I do recommend it to all dodgers¿ fans and Tommy lasorda fans too. The reason is Tommy was a great player and manager but he is recognized mostly for his successful managing skills. Also this book sends a message to you about life. As well as a very fun book but at times you forget if he¿s in the past or present. So you should this book.
