Home Run Heroes is a classic Jul 27, 2006
This is a great book telling how many home runs great ball players had throughout baseball history. I liked this book because it taught me new sports facts. I learned new facts when the book compared Mark Mc Gwire to Roger Maris. You need to read this book to find out who had more homeruns! Reviewed by Jack in St. Louis
