About the Author:

Alex Rodriguez is the third baseman for the New York Yankees. Three times voted the American League Most Valuable Player, he was born in New York City, moved with his family to their native Dominican Republic when he was four, then moved to Miami with his family at the age of eight. The only person in baseball history to hit 400 home runs before his thirtieth birthday, he hit his first home run at the age of six. Drafted out of high school, he played for the Seattle Mariners and then the Texas Rangers before being signed by the Yankees. Alex lives in New York City and Miami, Florida.

Alex Rodríguez juega la tercera base para los Yankees de Nueva York. Ha sido elegido dos veces como jugador más valioso (MVP) de la Liga Americana. Nació en Nueva York y a los cuatro años se mudó con su familia a su país de origen, la República Dominicana. Cuando Alex tenía ocho años, regresaron para radicarse en Miami. El único jugador en la historia del béisbol que ha bateado 400 jonrones antes de cumplir los treinta años de edad, ¡Alex bateó su primer jonrón a los seis años! Seleccionado en la escuela secundaria entre los mejores del país por los Marineros de Seattle, jugó para los Rancheros de Texas antes de ser contratado por los Yankees. Alex, su esposa Cynthia y su hijita viven en la ciudad de Nueva York y en Miami, FL.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3–This picture book by a New York Yankees' star features the familiar story of a young boy who achieves his ballpark dreams through hard work and determination. His team is in the playoffs, but he is having a terrible game. The Caribes win, nonetheless, and they're on their way to the championship. Alex, however, wants to improve, and practices constantly with a friend (even going so far as to get up at 5:00 a.m. to practice before school). Young Alex is a likable protagonist who's also playing for his friends and family in the stands. Morrison's action-packed illustrations, in vivid hues, help keep the story moving at a brisk pace. Rodriguez concludes with a note that includes his credo for success: No matter what your dreams and goals, you can never go wrong if you give them all you've got. The scrapbook of photos from his youth, including pictures of his family and friends, is nicely done. This book's appeal will lie mainly with young fans of the Yankee athlete.–Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA
