KIRKUS REVIEW

A team-full (that's nine) of today's and just yesterday's big stars--Sandy Koufax (pitcher), Elston Howard (catcher), Bill White (on first), Pete Rose (second), Maury Wills (short), Brooks Robinson (third), Hank Aaron (in left field), Willie Mays (center field), and Tony Oliva (right field)--are lined up and limned in rapid-fire style by seven journalists; add a supporting roster of sixteen in quick sketches that communicate something of the character and quality of each player. Concentrating on the sweep rather than the detail of a career, it's a breezy series of articles to titillate the initiate (or begin the beginner.)
