A LEFTY'S LEGACY is an amazing biography of an incomparable pitcher, a story that exemplifies courage, tenacity, and modesty. Former Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky, who immortalized Koufax in his poem "Night Game," reads most of the book, with alternating chapters read by the author. The story is a fascinating one, and Leavy reminds us that Koufax on the mound was poetry in motion. Pinsky is a moving reader, whether performing his own poems or classic haiku. But his New Jersey baritone is more a reflection of bookishness than the Brooklyn barrio, making him an unusual choice to read a book about professional baseball. Parents and teachers should take note that the book is peppered with locker-room language inappropriate for younger listeners. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
