Great Book About a Terrific Man and Pitcher
I highly recommend this book to the families of all young baseball fans (who probably haven't heard of Sandy Koufax). In an age of steroid scandals and "it's-all-about-me" players, Sandy Koufax stands out as a superstar who shunned the limelight, retired at the top of his game to protect the health of that famous left arm, and was a hero both to Dodger fans and to the Jewish community. The text is conversational and easy to read while still being full of details, and the illustrations are delightful; I was reminded of the work of Al Hirschfeld. I especially liked the addition of the small fact boxes on many pages that helped to put Sandy Koufax into true historical perspective: arguably the greatest lefty pitcher of all time. A great read and important book for baseball fans of all ages.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
