    Deep Drive Clears The Fences

    It is unbeleivable to think that Mike Lowell is who he is today and plays for arguably the greatest team in baseball. The odds were certainly always against him and his family. He grew up dirt poor in Puerto Rico and Cuba where his family was under the thumb of a dictator and even imprisoned. His dad could have been a great player if he had bowed to Castro but never would. Mike developed such character and skills from his dad that carried him through the struggle to play professional baseball and even through several life-threatening illnesses and injuries that surely would have stopped a lesser man. You will be inspired to read his story written in a down-to-earth style that fits a true, humble champion.

    deep drive Mike Lowell

    There are many reasons why I loved this book. It was very well written. The author stayed on course with the chapter idea. Unlike some books, Lowell did not go off topic from the main idea in each chapter. Mike also made me feel like I was actually interviewing him. He made it so that he was talking to the reader. That's what a book should do. There were some negatives.The book contained some adult content in the book, for example, Mike was too descriptive when he described his cancer. Many of the chapters dragged on, so he should have finished the chapters earlier or extended the amount of chapters.
    Mike's writing style was great because his writing was straight forward. He mentioned his personal experiences while explaining the positive and negative sides of these experiences. Throughout the entire story, he used the first person view which involved Mike's opinions and perspectives. This book was also easy for me to understand because the topics were very clear. He described his World Series and daily experiences clearly.
    I would recommend this book to anyone who loves sports and autobiographies because this book mainly focuses on sports and Mike Lowell's life before and after his 2007 World Series victory. I would also recommend this book for any grade level, except for children under the age of seven because there is adult content and bad language in some parts. It is also very descriptive. Some related novels are Red Sox Rule by Michael Holley, 2007 World Champions, and Wicked Good Year by Steve Burkley. Some books I recommend are The Outsiders, Swindle, and Tony Hawk Skateboarding.

    Four out of 5 stars!!!! That's the rating I would give Deep Drive by Mike Lowell and Rob Bradford A great story for anyone who wants a story of Baseball, triumph, and just a funny, emotional, sad, and happy story.

    Deep Drive by Mike Lowell is a great book. Two World Series rings, one World Series MVP, and a few golden gloves all belong to mike Lowell. He's one of the most well respected players in pro baseball. He is highly regarded by his whole team "Mike Lowell is such an honest man, a man who plays the game hard, and plays the game right, the whole time. He is the kind of teammate you love to have around you everyday"- former red sox WS MVP outfielder Manny Ramirez. He is well known throughout the baseball world as a great fielding, power hitting 3rd baseman. There's more to him than being a great player. He overcame testicular cancer. He overcame his father's Cuban background and racism that came with it. But still he has become one of best 3rd basemen in Red sox history and led the 2003 Florida Marlins and the 2007 Red Sox to two World series victories one over the Yankees (with the Marlins because the Red sox and Yankees are in the same division) and one over the Colorado Rockies. I think this is a great read because I personally love baseball and mike Lowell is my favorite player and a member of my favorite team, if you are a Lowell fan or a red sox fan, or a baseball player or any athlete you will love this story.

    An unassuming man...

    This book was absolutely amazing and I recommend it to everyone! If you weren't a Mike Lowell fan before reading this (can't imagine that you would not be), you certainly will be after you finish. This shows a side of Mike that is truly amazing. What respect and admiration I have for him now as a person as well as a player. What a gentleman he is. What better person to have representing the game and being a role model!!

    A Hometown Hero

    Growing up in Miami, I enjoyed reading every minute of this book. He took me back to a wonderful time in baseball for this city. He has been through so much and I am so happy that his baseball dreams have come true.
