Have you ever heard of Sandy Koufax? He was a pitcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers who got off to a rocky start. Sandy was determined to stay in the game and eventually it paid off. At a time when there were few Jews in the Major Leagues, Sandy was often discriminated against, especially after he refused to play in the World Series during the Jewish Holy Days. This picture book biography introduces baseball fans to Sandy Koufax, who still remains something of a mystery today.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2011)
SUBJECTS:     Koufax, Sandy, 1935-
                        Baseball players.
                        Los Angeles Dodgers (Baseball team)
