From Wayne Gretzky to Michael Jordan and the others in the elite group known as the best. This book showcases the best and their greatest moments in history and some of the backstory's behind them.

One day they were listening to a Brooklyn Dodgers game on the raido when they got inspired to start their own baseball team. After they practiced, the team entered a quallifing game in McAllen, Texas. To make a long story shor ...more
