Abstract:

Jim Thome: Lefty Launcher is the first book ever written about the man who has hit 30 or more home runs for four-consecutive seasons, the first left-handed hitter in franchise history to accomplish that feat. Thome also ranks sixth on Clevelands all-time list for career home runs. Lefty Launcher details the life of the fan favorite, and how he is very active in the community, distributing toys to area youths at Christmas the last three years. The 29-year-old is a native of Peoria, Illinois, who now resides in Aurora, Ohio. Few major leaguers are more popular than Jim Thome, and his young fans will enjoy reading about his rise to fame in the great American game. Jim Thome: Lefty Launcher is another title in the SuperStar Series from Sports Publishing Inc., books designed to appeal to younger readers. Athletes selected for this series are determined not only by their statistics, but also by their character.
