About this product
- DescriptionThis is an exciting biography of a celebrated center fielder. As an Atlanta Brave, Andruw Jones has proven himself as a dependable and tenacious player, appearing in at least 150 games per season. Born in the Caribbean, Jones was encouraged by his baseball-playing father and showed prodigious talent at an early age, signing with the Braves when he was only 16. Since making the majors, he has been awarded the Rawlings Gold Glove for center fielders every year since 1998, and is a five-time All-Star. With his almost-perfect glove in the outfield and aiming-for-the-wall bat, the center fielder has drawn comparisons to past greats such as Willie Mays.Andruw Jones covers all the biographical bases, with action-packed photographs, statistics, and a timeline.
