Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bruce Adelson
Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Josh Gibson, 'Cool Papa' Bell and others are profiled alphabetically in this ambitious book of baseball's best hitters. Many of the game's most prominent contemporary batsmen, including Tony Gwynn, Ken Griffey, Jr. and Mark Mc Gwire are also included. This book is to be commended for its breadth of coverage, including statistics, biographical information and hitters from the Negro Leagues, although the author often would have been better served to rely more on players' personal details rather than a detailed listing of their statistics. Children interested in baseball will find much to enjoy here. However, despite the book's promise, it does contain a surprising number of errors. One prominent miscue arises in the Hank Aaron section when baseball's all-time home run king is mistakenly described as the "last player from the Negro League to play in the majors." Several players reached the big leagues after Mr. Aaron did in 1954, such as Joe Durham, the first African-American player to hit a home run for the Baltimore Orioles. One other prominent mistake erroneously lists the Los Angeles Dodgers as winners of the 1995 National League pennant instead of the Atlanta Braves.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8Unlike some books with similar titles, this one has the advantage of actually including information on a lot of players and not just six or seven. Profiling 100 sluggers, Crisfield covers athletes from the past, those still active, and even a few stars from the Negro Leagues. Some fans may quibble about players left out, and all of those who are included may not deserve to be, but readers will be delighted with the short, informative articles. The entries are arranged alphabetically and present the essential facts of each man's career, as well as mentioning the unique aspects of his record. Some players such as Henry Aaron and Ted Williams receive longer entries. Black-and-white action shots and portraits appear throughout. The statistics are current through the 1997 season and there are enough of them to give this title some usefulness as a reference source. The book's layout, comprehensiveness, and clearly written text are sure to be a hit with baseball fans.Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Library, IL
