Behind the Plate: A Catcher's View of the Braves Dynasty by Javy Lopez
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoyed reading this book because I am a Braves fan. Also I am a Javy Lopez fan. The book details a lot about Javy growing up and some interesting behind scenes look at baseball especially in the Braves clubhouse. The book is a little choppy probably because English is a second language for Javy. He is very clear he loved playing for the Braves and looked forward to retiring with them. Unfortunately, this did not happen. He broke the single season record for home runs hit by a catcher. He also is in the top ten in 12 categories on the Atlanta Braves Career Leaderboard. He is tied for first for Grand Slams for the Braves; he hit seven in his career. He also is tied for first in two homer games in a season for the Braves and is tied for third for homers at home in a season for the Braves with 26. If you are a Braves fan or a Javy Lopez fan you will enjoy this book!
