Step back in time and join historian and author Mark Goldman in conversation with Buffalo News writer Mark Sommer about his new book: “Rocky Colavito: Cleveland’s Iconic Slugger”. Rocky Colavito captivated fans during the 1950s and 1960s with his movie-star looks, boyish enthusiasm, powerful bat and cannon-like arm. This biography of “the Rock”—the first in more than half a century—recounts his origins in an Italian immigrant family, his close friendships with Herb Score and Roger Maris, and his rise through the minors to become one of the Cleveland Indians’ most beloved players. He retired in 1968 ranked 15th in career home runs.
