At the Plate with...Sammy Sosa, Paperback / softback Book

At the Plate with...Sammy Sosa Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Throughout the 1998 baseball season, two names made the headlines more than any others: Mark McGwire, the eventual home run king, and Sammy Sosa, the runner-up in a race that won the hearts of baseball fans worldwide.

Yet at the end of the day, it was Sosa who walked away with the National League's MVP award, not McGwire.

Why? Because Sosa had dug the dismal 1997 Chicago Cubs out of the cellar not just with his home runs, but also with his spectacular all-around play.

Yet Sosa's contributions off the field, both in the States and in his native land, the Dominican Republic, are even more impressive.

In this powerful biography of one of the most admired sluggers in baseball, Matt Christopher, the number one sports series for kids, traces Sosa's life from his poverty-stricken childhood-when shining shoes put food on the table-to his professional career.
