Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-- Here's a glimpse of the life of the Baltimore Oriole's star shortstop. Thornley spends a considerable amount of time looking at Ripken's youth in his baseball family: his father played, coached, and managed professionally in the Orioles organization, and his brother is currently a teammate. He follows the young athlete through his high school and minor and major league careers, with some mention of his off-field activities. Black-and-white game-action photographs, enlivened with some childhood snapshots, appear throughout the text. Career statistics and important major league accomplishments are appended. --Tom S. Hurlburt, La Crosse Public Library, WI
