Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Donna Freedman
If you know a young baseball fan, by all means buy him or her this readable, interesting book, which profiles 27 long-ball hitters. Sullivan also offers some history of the game, including the fact that years ago, the idea was NOT to clout triples or home runs, but to advance the runners with well-placed hits. He also explains why the old-time players had trouble going for the long fly ball: pitchers were allowed to do anything they wanted to a ball, and the ball was used for the entire game, so it wound up a dark, shapeless, sodden mass that was hard to hit very far. Sullivan includes some pretty neat facts, and gives young readers historical figures (Josh Gibson, Joe DiMaggio) along with modern heroes such as Bo Jackson, Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-- A slick , glossy gallery of 27 of baseball's greatest longball smashers, arranged in reverse chronological order. An introductory essay traces the transition from the pre-1910 ``deadball'' era, when hitters slapped singles through gaps in the infield, to the age of the great slugger, typified by Babe Ruth and sustained today by crunchers like Jose Canseco and Bo Jackson. The design is a pleasing combination of text and photographs, many of which are full color. Each profile succinctly captures the man's unique physical presence at the plate. A purist may dispute the inclusion of still-active George Brett, a great hitter not especially known for home runs, in favor of Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, fourth on the all-time homer list. But any ``greatest'' list invites argument and most of the famous names in swat--Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle--are here. A listing of leaders in individual statistical categories and an explanation of how they are compiled appear in a useful appendix. An attractive addition to the sports shelf. --James Witham, Lexington Public Library, KY
