The tone set in this biography of the 1993 All-Star Game MVP is refreshingly low-key. Calderon's reading downplays the disadvantages Puckett faced pursuing his dream to become a professional baseball player, portraying Puckett as a player determined to continually sharpen his skills. This determination rings clear as the key to his success. But being a professional baseball player today is not just playing baseball for nine innings. Puckett speaks of the contract negotiations which often distract a player from the job he loves. I Love This Game is truly a testimonial of a player who focuses on the craft of the sport, not the astronomical salaries. M.P.T. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 93]
