Randy Johnson by Susan Muaddi Darraj, Rob Maaddi

Standing 6 feet 10 inches tall, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Randy Johnson is one of the tallest players in Major League Baseball history, and his accomplishments on the diamond have taken the sport to new heights. Nicknamed the Big Unit, the five-time Cy Young Award winner leads active players in strikeouts per nine innings (10.77) and is second in both strikeouts (4,544) and shutouts (37). And his achievements don't end there: Johnson holds the MLB record for consecutive seasons with 300 strikeouts (five) and ranks third all time in career strikeouts behind Nolan Ryan and Roger Clemens. Readers will marvel at these remarkable statistics and more in this fun and informative new biography of one of the true giants of America's favorite pastime.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
