Finding the Left Arm of God: Sandy Koufax and the Los Angeles Dodgers, 1960-1963 is the story of the Dodgers' volatile fortunes during the transformation of Sandy Koufax from a wild young left-hander with a career losing record on the verge of quitting the game to an artist with exquisite control of the baseball - a veritable Mozart on the mound. It continues the story begun in Bums No More: The 1959 Los Angeles Dodgers, World Champions of Baseball which chronicled the Dodgers' first two years on the West Coast. It is a broad view narrative history of the Dodgers in the first four years of the 1960's set against the backdrop of the world changing events of John F. Kennedy's fleeting New Frontier presidency. Readers will travel with the team through these tumultuous years, from their sudden plunge into the baseball wilderness in 1960, to their return to pennant contention in Sandy Koufax' breakout year of 1961, through their catastrophic collapse of 1962 precipitated by Koufax' freak mid-season finger injury, to their redemption in 1963 culminating with their second World Championship in Los Angeles. Finding the Left Arm of God is the second book of a trilogy on the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Sandy Koufax Era: 1958-1966.
