Rate this:
"For a glorious decade, from 1945-55, Harry Agganis ruled sports headlines across New England, and the United States. He was the most celebrated schoolboy athlete in the country, a three sport high school star who turned down offers from more than seventy-five colleges to attend Boston University - so he could be near his widowed mother." "He was a quadruple threat All-America football star and one of the most sought-after baseball players in America. He was the first draft choice of the World Champion Cleveland Browns, chosen to succeed legendary quarterback Otto Graham." "But the story of Harry Agganis is his clean-cut life and love for family, friends and church, and dedication to his hometown of Lynn, Massachusetts, where he went from the sandlots to college to the Marines to the Boston Red Sox, where starring as a slugging left-hander at first base, he was paired with Ted Williams - until tragedy struck suddenly." "This, for the first time, is the story of the man they called "The Golden Greek.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
