Retired Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, Big Papi, is a one of a kind champion, a big man with a big heart and the rightful owner of one of the most storied careers in modern sports. The previously unattainable World Series championships (unreachable without him?), the PED accusations, countless opponents and teammates , behind-the-scenes machinations of the Red Sox organization, and the ever-present Boston media; it's all here! Ultimately, spoiler alert, we do learn that there are still some role models and heroes left in the world. Papi! ~ Reviewed by Jon Fine

"I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth," the dying Lou Gehrig's unforgettable phrase spoken at a Yankee Stadium ceremony, catapulted a baseball player to heroism. Gary Cooper's modest and dignified portrayal of Gehrig in The Pride of the Yankees is revealed by Sandomir as a near-perfect match of a ballplayer and a star. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
