Overview

era simplemente: Alex.

Un niño que quería jugar béisbol más que nada en el mundo.

La estrella del béisbol Alex Rodríguez se ha inspirado en sus propios recuerdos de infancia para crear este emocionante libro para niños. Es la historia de un chico, Alex, que sabe lo mal que se siente al dar un batazo ante un lanzamiento despiadado, o cuando la pelota le rebota a uno entre las piernas. Alex está decidido a no darse por vencido, ¡aún si eso significa tener que levantarse todos los días antes del amanecer para practicar bateando o aparando antes de ir a la escuela!

Lleno del mismo espíritu de determinación y amor al deporte que colocó a AROD en una clase aparte, ¡Jonrón! es un regalo de este grande del deporte a todos los pequeños jugadores que sueñan con convertirse en estrellas.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

New York Yankees third baseman Rodriguez dips into his childhood to field this buoyant tale of a ballplayer with an obvious passion for the game. Though young Alex desperately hopes to play well during the playoff game and make his family proud, the boy repeatedly botches plays ("I think I'm setting a record for errors and strikeouts in the same game"). Yet his team wins and progresses to the championships. The next morning, Alex wakes at dawn to practice (in an extraneous, odd scene, he and a teammate run past their teacher, who is holding her nose, and Alex says to his pal, "If we stink now, wait till after practice this afternoon"). Rodriguez sets up an expected but still satisfying climax: in the bottom of the last inning of the championship game, Alex bats with the bases loaded and, with two strikes, hits a grand slam to win the team's first championship. Morrison's (Jazzy Miz Mozetta) stylized paintings capture the story's energy and his playfully skewed perspectives keep things light. In a concluding note, Rodriguez shares his "recipe for success," which entails working hard on and off the field, staying away from drugs and showing respect for others. Baseball-loving kids will appreciate the message that even future MVPs can have an off day, and young Yankee fans will especially appreciate the photos of Rodriguez's boyhood plus a Topps baseball card with a photo of the young ballplayer (attached to the back endpapers). Ages 4-8. (Feb.)

Meet the Author

Alex Rodriguez is the third baseman for the New York Yankees. Three times voted the American League Most Valuable Player, he was born in New York City, moved with his family to their native Dominican Republic when he was four, then moved to Miami with his family at the age of eight. The only person in baseball history to hit 400 home runs before his thirtieth birthday, he hit his first home run at the age of six. Drafted out of high school, he played for the Seattle Mariners and then the Texas Rangers before being signed by the Yankees. Alex lives in New York City and Miami, Florida.


Alex Rodríguez juega la tercera base para los Yankees de Nueva York. Ha sido elegido dos veces como jugador más valioso (MVP) de la Liga Americana. Nació en Nueva York y a los cuatro años se mudó con su familia a su país de origen, la República Dominicana. Cuando Alex tenía ocho años, regresaron para radicarse en Miami. El único jugador en la historia del béisbol que ha bateado 400 jonrones antes de cumplir los treinta años de edad, ¡Alex bateó su primer jonrón a los seis años! Seleccionado en la escuela secundaria entre los mejores del país por los Marineros de Seattle, jugó para los Rancheros de Texas antes de ser contratado por los Yankees. Alex, su esposa Cynthia y su hijita viven en la ciudad de Nueva York y en Miami, FL.

Frank Morrison visited the Louvre Museum in Paris while touring with his dancing group and was inspired to choose painting as his new path. He is the winner of the Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award for New Talent for Jazzy Miz Mozetta by Brenda C. Roberts, and he has illustrated Queen of the Scene by Queen Latifah.
