Description:
In this striking picture book biography, an old-timer tells us what made Sandy Koufax so amazing. We learn that the beginning of his career with the Brooklyn Dodgers was rocky, that he was shy with his teammates, and experienced discrimination as one of the only Jews in the game. We hear that he actually quit, only to return the next season - different - firing one rocket after another over the plate. We watch him refuse to play in the 1965 World Series because it is a Jewish high holy day. And we see him in pain because of an overused left arm, eventually retiring at the peak of his career. Finally, we are told that people are still scratchin their heads over Sandy, who remains a modest hero and a mystery to this day.

Cover is a stunning holographic illustration that must be seen to be truly appreciated. Page illustrations have arresting gold accents. Accompanied by sidebars filled with statistics, here s a book sure to delight budding baseball fans - and veteran fans as well!
