The book Dustin Pedroia:Born to Play is about the Boston Red Sox second basemen Dustin Pedroia and his life as a little boy growing up through high school and college and becoming a major league baseball star. This book tells so many different things about Dustin Pedroia you never thought that you'd find out in your life. It tells you the injuries that he had, the things he did to become a pro, and about the different paths that he took growing up to become one of the best in the MLB. Some things that I thought that I'd never find out about Dustin are that he broke his knee by playing football even though his football coach said that by playing football it wouldn't screw up his baseball career in anyway. Another thing was that he was a San Francisco Giants fan when he was a little kid and he knew barely anything about the Boston Red Sox.
This book one of the best books I've ever read. I say this because Dustin Pedroia is one of my favorite baseball players and to find out all of this information about him is something I've been trying to figure out for a while and this book gives me all of the information I could ever want. Good things about this book are that it tells you all sorts of cool information about him. It is written by Dustin so it's not someone's information that they got from some website or some random person, it's from him so you get everything that actually happened and the exact details that came from the person who experienced the actual event. Some bad things about the book are that it may carry on with a topic for a little longer than you might like it to,otherwise, I don't think that this book has a lot of bad things about it.Read more ›
