CHARACTERS Lefty By Vernona Gomez 107 SUMMARY Lefty By Vernona Gomez A baseball legend distinguished by his competitive nature uick wit and generous spirit Lefty Gomez was one of a kind Told for the first time this is his remarkable story  Born to a small town California ranching family the youngest of eight Vernon “Lefty” Gomez rode his powerful arm and jocular personality right across America to the dugout of the New York Yankees Lefty baffled hitters with his blazing fastball establishing himself as the team’s ace He vacationed with Babe Ruth served as Joe DiMaggio’s confidant and consoled Lou Gehrig the day the “Iron Horse” removed himself from the lineup He started and won the first ever All Star Game was the first pitcher to make the cover of Time magazine and barnstormed Japan as part of Major League Baseball’s grand ambassa. Vernon Gomez nicknamed Lefty for obvious reasons pitched for the NY Yankees from 1930 1942 This is rather amazing as this was the time when pitchers were in the game till their arms fell off They virtually pitched themselves out of their careers Vernon was the type of pitcher that would pitch everyday if asked he had a fierce drive to compete and to win This is the account of his life from the beginning to the end We follow along through the early years of baseball the good and the bad we are introduced to other greats such as Babe Ruth Lou Gehrig Joe DiMaggio Bill Dickey and Phil Rizzuto Other players who were well known and stars at the time but whose names are not familiar to me Even after his baseball career was over he stayed connected to the game He had a reputation as a man you could trust and his work ethic on the baseball diamond carried on it was a legacy left to him by his parents He did a lot to help break down the race barriers in baseball along with establishing baseball clinics for young players Much of the account is related in stories from people that were there or heard of it where there is a conflict that is brought out too in one event of his life where not much is known the author simply states He never said why he did what he didThis was an easy to read book the narrative was flowing and while not compelling was not boring or tedious It had the background information of Lefty and June s life that you expect from a biography making it a well rounded account
