Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax may have had the best consecutive years of any pitcher ever from 1961 through 1966, winning 149 games while losing just forty-seven with a miniscule earned run average and more than one strikeout per inning. He retired at age thirty because of severe arthritis in his pitching arm. This book chronicles his turbulent life and focuses on the reverential mystique enveloping Koufax even to this day-based in equal parts on his magnificence; his retirement, caused by a tragic condition; and his subsequent Garboesque public persona.
