A biography of the ace pitcher who won the Cy Young award four times and who currently plays for the Atlanta Braves.
Children's Literature - Kathleen KellyWhen Greg Maddux was 12 years old, his Little League Coach refused to let him pitch in the championship game because it would have been unfair to the opposing team! It's no wonder, then, that almost twenty years later his skill and hard work led the Atlanta Braves to victory in the World Series. Torres' lively, photo-filled biography, based exclusively on newspaper and magazine sources, offers just the kind of technical sports details young fans will love. Many relevant terms in the text are found in the glossary, although just as many are left undefined. An appendix listing Maddux's career highlights offers additional treasures.
