Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
From the standpoint of interest in baseball 1998 stands as one of the most intense years in recent history. For many avid baseball fans, the focus of attention rested upon two unique sluggers who attempted to shatter one of the penultimate records in sports. Across that spring, summer, and fall Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa pursued the single season home run record set in 1961 by Roger Maris. In many ways Sosa and McGuire were not only chasing Maris' total but also the ghost of Babe Ruth who originally set the standard with 60 homers in 1927. McGuire of the St. Louis Cardinals had approached this milestone in previous years and was considered to be a probable successor to home run champions of days-gone-by. However, Sammy Sosa, a member of the perennial doormat Chicago Cubs, also shot into the limelight with an incredible year of slugging. Laced with dramatic colored photos of both players and a fast paced text, this concise sports book is appealing. Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa both eclipsed the Maris record, and ultimately, Mark McGuire set the new standard with 70 home runs while Sammy Sosa swatted 66. Both of these superstars will go down in baseball history. A engaging book that any baseball fan should enjoy. 1998, Aladdin Paperbacks, Ages 10 up, $5.99. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Background information about these two players and the relationship that grew between them is explored with plenty of facts. Full color, action-filled photographs dominate this title which may make it appealing to reluctant readers and those who enjoy baseball statistics.
