Summary

Summary

Already a media darling both on and off the field, New York Yankee shortstop Jeeter is the linchpin of a supercharged Yankee offense. As a child growing up in Michigan, he predicted that he would play shortstop and win a world championship for the Yankees one day. He achieved these goals at the age of 22.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-Stewart profiles two young superstar shortstops. Both Rodriguez, who plays for the Seattle Mariners, and New York Yankee Jeter are at the top of their games and have already posted impressive numbers in their brief careers. While the texts are pretty standard sports biographies, the attractive format with lots of full-color pictures and little sidebar facts on almost every page are sure to appeal to the intended audience. Unfortunately, both books take readers only through the 1998 season. These titles will prove popular with many young fans, but will leave them wanting more.-Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Library, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
