Maddog 100-Greatest Sports Arguments of All Time by Russo

  • Nov 27, 2003
Rating:
+5
This book is a sports enthusiast's dream come true. It has
separate sections on the so-called "must reads", "down to the
wire", "athletes caught in the draft", "The All-Century Team"
and much much more.Do you like to quote little-known sports
statistics? If yes, then this book is for you. There are
specific stats for Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Joe DiMaggio and a host
of famous and not so famous players. The book talks about the
kids in the $5000 suits and the tremendous contracts dangled
before them to make them part of the team. Buy this as a
gift for any sports enthusiast in the house.
