A REALLY GOOD READ

THIS IS THE STORY OF FORMER GREAT ROD CAREW FROM THE MINNESOTA TWINS AND CALIFORNIA ANGELS. HE TELLS US HIS STORY FROM A CHILD IN PANAMA TO HIS HALL OF FAME CAREER. ON THE WAY, HE MARRIES A WHITE WOMAN AND MUST DEAL WITH THE RESULTS AND INSULTS FROM SOCIETY. HIS WIFE IS JEWISH AND HIS TELLING OF HIS ACCEPTENCE AND CULTURAL SHOCK IS A MUST READ. THE BOOK IS HUMOROUS AND VERY WELL TOLD. ROD WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST HITTERS I HAVE EVER SEEN, HITTING ONE OF THE HIGHEST AVERAGES OF .388 IN THE LAST 60 YEARS. THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN WHEN HIS YOUNEST DAUGHTER WAS AN INFANT. LATER TRAGEDY WOULD STRIKE WHEN SHE WOULD DIE IN HER TEENS FROM A BLOOD DISEASE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FOR ALL FANS.
