Sammy Sosa: Slammin' Sammyby George Castle, Rob Rains (Editor)
When Sports Publishing Inc. published Mark McGwire: Mac Attack! in the spring of 1998 and sold out of 40,000 units in three quick printings, we knew we were on to something special. Now with the credentials of series editor Rob Rains and the cooperation from the Associate Press, we are able to attract quality writers to adapt this idea further into what we know as the SuperStar Series. When deciding which athletes to profile, our editors take into account not only a players statistics, but also his/her character. While no one can guarantee the behavior of another individual, SPI takes care to selct athletes that are known to be community minded and can serve as role models. The biographical material on each athlete goes from his/her earliest days to the present.
