Alex Rodriguez's Greatest Loss Could be His Yankee Legacy

In October, 2006, Sports Illustrated published a book that included stunning oversized photographs and pictorials that fondly celebrated our National Pastime. “The Baseball Book” paid homage to the legends and every day ball players that have defined the game for well over a century. Whether it was a promotional tool or a motivation to sell more books, Sports Illustrated assembled 22 baseball experts and presented them with the enviable task of selecting an all star team for the ages. The parameters were rather basic in nature: seven starting pitchers, two closers, two catchers, seven infielders, seven outfielders, two coaches and one manager. To commemorate the special occasion, photo illustrator Aaron Goodman created a visual masterpiece that was included in the book as well as the cover of the magazine.
