KIRKUS REVIEW

Handsome, versatile, and dedicated to baseball, hitter Jackie Jensen is one of the few non-pennant team members to win baseball's top honors. In this story of his rise from poverty, his marriage to an Olympic swimmer, his outstanding performances in football, swimming and golf, his heartbreaking struggle against illness and team maneuverings, the zeal of his dedication is revealed. Strictly for the fans, this is a detailed portrait of one of the Red Sox' most celebrated players.
