Nobody ever threw a baseball better than Sandy Koufax. He dominated the game -- and the ball, making it rise, break, sing. Then, after his best season, in 1966, he was gone, retired at age thirty, leaving behind a reputation as the game's greatest lefty and most misunderstood man. The Brooklyn boy whom the Dodgers signed as "the Great Jewish Hope" will forever be known for his refusal to pitch the opening game of the 1965 World Series because it fell on Yom Kippur. Forty years later, Koufax stands apart and alone, a legend who declines his own celebrity. In Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy, Jane Leavy dispels the mystery to discover a man more than worthy of the myth.

Sandy Koufax; A Lefty's Legacy

Leavy, Jane

New York: HarperCollinsPublishers, 2002. First Edition. Later printing. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. 24 cm. xxii, 282 pages. Illustrated endpapers. Illustrations. Appendix. Index. DJ has slight wear and soiling. Signed by the author on the title page. Jane Leavy (born December 26, 1951) is an American sportswriter and feature writer, formerly with the Washington Post. She writes particularly about baseball. She is the author of the 1990 comic novel Squeeze Play, which was called "the best novel ever written about baseball" by Entertainment Weekly. She also wrote a best-selling 2002 biography of Sandy Koufax. In 2010 she published The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle and the End of America's Childhood, an extensive chronicle of Mantle's off-field behavior. The book was based on interviews she had with the late Yankee slugger. Her new book, The Big Fella: Babe Ruth and the World He Created, was named one of the top ten biographies/memoirs for the fall of 2018 by Publishers Weekly. Leavy graduated from Barnard College in 1974 and from Columbia University School of Journalism in 1976 Derived for a Kirkus review: Leavy has produced a very convincing portrait. She concentrates on the player's last six playing years, when his fastball and curve ruled. His plays on the mound are adeptly recorded-including his perfect game, told with consummate skill. But it's a sense of Koufax's character that Leavy most wishes to convey. Koufax has been shoehorned into the recluse category; because he is reserved and Jewish, he was typecast as "moody, aloof, curt, intellectual, different." Yes, he wouldn't pitch the opening game of the World Series because it fell on Yom Kippur, an act with profound cultural impact. But Leavy reveals also a man of dignity, honesty, and courtesy, not to mention his having that shaman's touch with a baseball. He is, simply, a standard: "In virtually every way that matters, ethically and economically, medically and journalistically, he offers a way to measure where we've been, what we've come to, what we've lost." Well-conceived and sharply drawn, a thinking fan's biography.
