Item 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. For more information on the Matt Christopher Sports Bio Bookshelf, please see the last pages of this book.

Terriblious!!!!!!!! this book sucks  Feb 27, 2007
This book is terrible. He is 1 of the worst players in the MLB!!!!!

In the home run derby he corked his bat and they found out!!!! and then they let him use that bat they r stupid!!!!!!!!!!

They should have kicked him out of the MLB for life!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
At the plate with Sammy Sosa  Jul 15, 2004
I think this book is very good because it's very educational for us kids.I really recommend this book to other kids because it gives an authur's message of hard work really pays off.
 
Excellent  Jun 19, 2004
This great book on Sammy Sosa is superior in every way to most of the "cash-in" paperbacks written on baseball superstars. Well-written, engaging and full of information, Sosa may not be baseball's Superman, but he is an interesting guy profiled in this interesting book. Buy it[...]
 
RECOMMENDED  Jun 13, 2004
This is a fun book that looks at a great superstar whose legacy will get better over time.

Sammy Sosa review  Jun 2, 2004
I liked the biography that I read because I learned that he has turned into one of the most homerun hitters of all time.
This book has some interesting facts about his life I was especially surprised to learn that when he was seven he wanted to help his mother inside the house instead of playing with his brothers and sisters.
I would highly recommend it to people who like to read about other people and sport books. I loved this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
