An American Odyssey `An intimate portrait of a man whose life off the field was equally as captivating as his unparalleled baseball career.`-Yankees Magazine Born into a small-town California ranching family, Vernon `Lefty` Gomez rode his powerful arm and jocular personality across America to the dugout of the New York Yankees. Lefty baffled hitters with his blazing fastball, establishing himself as the team`s ace. Now, drawing on countless conversations with Lefty, more than three hundred interviews conducted with his family, friends, competitors, and teammates over the course of a decade, and revealing candid photos, documents, and film clips-many never shown publicly-his daughter Vernona Gomez and her award-winning co-author Lawrence Goldstone vividly re-create the life and adventures of the irreverent southpaw. A star-studded romp through America`s most glamorous years, with cameos from Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, George Gershwin, Ernest Hemingway, and Marilyn Monroe, Lefty is at once a long-overdue reminder of a pitcher`s greatness and a heartwarming celebration of a life well-lived. `His story transcends sports and gives us a much-needed lesson in grit and grace.`-Jon Meacham `A loving and beautifully written tribute . . . Be prepared to be transformed, and to discover stars who were stars in an age when that word really meant something.`-Mike Greenberg, co-host of ESPN`s Mike and Mike in the Morning `An amiable portrait of a baseball great-like Yogi Berra, Dizzy Dean and Satchel Paige-whose outsized personality looms even larger than his considerable athletic achievements.`-Kirkus Reviews Lefty: `An intimate portrait of a man whose life off the field was equally as captivating as his unparalleled baseball career.`-Yankees Magazine Born into a small-town California ranching family, Vernon `Lefty` Gomez rode his powerful arm and jocular personality across America to the dugout of the New York Yankees.
