"Students can utilize this biography for both its information and pictures."

Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District, January 26, 2010

"Gitlin does an excellent job of combining both Wright’s dual appeal as a talented baseball player and humanitarian. While young people might not have initially been interested in the latter side of him, they will come away from this book with even more respect for the baseball star."
