Podcast featuring this book

“You gotta be kidding! You never heard of Sandy Koufax?! He was only the greatest lefty who ever pitched in the game of baseball. Well, for six years he was, anyway.” If the mesmerizing lenticular cover doesn’t grab readers’ attention for this baseball biography, then the persuasive voice of the narrator will. Recounting Koufax’s unpredictable early years, his experiences as a Jewish player, and the evolution of his erratic pitch into a wildly successful one, the wise-talking storyteller energetically conveys the arc of Sandy Koufax’s brief baseball career. Highly stylized illustrations with a metallic sheen and attractive text boxes showing baseball statistics round out the winning features of this captivating story. CCBC categories: Biography and Autobiography.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
