Alfonso Soriano: The Dominican Dream Come True
Alfonso Soriano came from the dirt fields of the Dominican Republic-playing with sticks for bats and curled-up socks for balls-to become one of the most productive and engaging second basemen in history. In 2002, he had an amazing season. The New York Yankees leadoff man hit 39 home runs and stole 41 bases. He broke the American League record for home runs by a second baseman and became the first second baseman to join the 30-30 club. Featuring interviews with current and former players, current broadcasters and those who know Soriano best, this book analyzes his season from a historical standpoint and takes a look at what's in store for one of baseball's brightest stars.
