Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–8—As he did in The Greatest Moments in Sports (Sourcebooks, 2009), Berman offers a readable collection of facts and anecdotes. This time, he introduces 25 baseball players in short chapters that highlight their career accomplishments and milestones. Though a "blue ribbon panel" of sports writers and players helped narrow his list, sportscaster Berman colors this collection with his personal opinions. His enthusiasm is infectious, and observing that statistics only tell part of the story, he personalizes each account with memorable incidents and accomplishments. The colorful design adds to the appeal. There are few surprises among those chosen; most are Hall of Famers and include Ty Cobb, Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Jackie Robinson, and Berman's hero, Mickey Mantle. The notables also include Pete Rose, Josh Gibson, and Alex Rodriguez. Jeff Kisseloff's well-written Who Is Baseball's Greatest Hitter? (Holt, 2001) and Who Is Baseball's Greatest Pitcher? (Cricket Bks., 2003) were crowd-pleasing favorites. Like those earlier books, Berman's lively title should win a wide audience of fans young and old.—Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA

From Booklist

Emmy Award–winning sportscaster Berman offers a lively and informative collection of baseball greats, past to present. The selected players include the expected (Lou Gehrig, Jackie Robinson) as well as relatively lesser-known talents, including Josh Gibson, who played in the Negro Leagues and is the only Hall of Famer included here who never played major-league ball. Sections on each player include photos, biographical information, and professional stats, and Berman addresses the controversies surrounding many figures; for example, all-time hit leader Pete Rose remains banned from the hall for gambling. Conversational prose, abundant photos, and exciting accounts of particular plays keep the tone upbeat and engaging, while frequent sidebars expand on both general information (the formula for determining ERAs, for example) and specific facts, such as the origin of players’ nicknames. The lack of source notes, an index, and suggested reading material may limit this as a report resource, but Berman’s knowledge and enthusiasm is evident, and this will likely provoke discussion among young fans, who may come away inspired to compile their own lists of greats. Grades 5-8. --Shelle Rosenfeld

Posted September 16, 2010, 4:23 PM EST: This book is by no means going to please everyone with its choices of 25 players, but that isn't the point! It is meant to educate teens, pre-teens, and even adults about 25 amazing players who the "blue ribbon" panel of baseball authorities voted to include in this book. It's also a great way to start the discussion.....including A-Rod makes you talk about Pujols, Cy Young makes you talk about Nolan Ryan. This is a book which you will pick up as a family over and over....and have those good natured arguments about sports that all true fans really enjoy. Highly recommended!

Once again, Len has written an interesting and captivating book about sports. It was fascinating reading about each of the great players Len chose to make his Top 25!

This book will give readers of all ages much pleasure. The pictures and graphics are very pleasing to the eye. I enjoyed reading the stories of baseball players from different generations. The author gives lots of fun facts that I didn't know. I especially recommend Mr. Berman's books to reluctant readers. I wish I could discuss this book with my grandfather. He would have loved to debate who are the top 25 baseball players.

All you need to do is look at the "blue ribbon" panel comprised of Yankees and Red Sox homers to know this will not be an erudite, balanced publication. Bernie Williams? Give me a break! A guy who played his entire career with one team hardly has the perspective to judge players of his own era, much less through 100+ years. Human nature will give the nod to modern players. We certainly don't need newbie panelists like Williams voting on the greatest players ever. Sheesh.
