Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Great stories plus great memories equals great reading."
Manny Ramirez
"Anyone that tells you they don't have butterflies that first day is lying to you....I could feel the butterflies in my stomach every minute. On the way to the stadium, more butterflies. In the clubhouse, butterflies, and when I saw I'd be playing, I could hardly breathe, man."—Manny Ramirez
Cal Ripken
"Excitement just shoots through you when [the callup] happens. You can't sleep the whole night. I know I didn't."—Cal Ripken
Albert Pujols
"My family called me. They knew before I did! . . . They said 'Yeah, it's all over the news, you're going to open in the big leagues.'...Later, Tony La Russa made it official. . . . I gave myself permission to be excited then."—Albert Pujols
