Synopsis:

Nobody ever threw a baseball better than Sandy Koufax. He dominated the game -- and the ball, making it rise, break, sing. Then, after his best season, in 1966, he was gone, retired at age thirty, leaving behind a reputation as the game's greatest lefty and most misunderstood man. The Brooklyn boy whom the Dodgers signed as "the Great Jewish Hope" will forever be known for his refusal to pitch the opening game of the 1965 World Series because it fell on Yom Kippur. Forty years later, Koufax stands apart and alone, a legend who declines his own celebrity. In Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy, Jane Leavy dispels the mystery to discover a man more than worthy of the myth.


Review:

"We scarcely know Koufax at all, but after Jane Leavy's delightful SANDY KOUFAX: A LEFTY'S LEGACY, we probably know him as well as anyone needs to."

Allen Barra, New York Times Book Review, 10/13/2002

Review:

"Well-conceived and sharply drawn, a thinking fan's biography."

Kirkus, 09/01/2002
