Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This program is part of a series that profiles some of the great figures in sports history. This episode is hosted by Jayne Kennedy, and features baseball star Steve Garvey. The first baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers was a hero both on and off the field. He comported himself with dignity, saying he always wanted to act as if some little boy or girl was watching him. His consistency as a hitter and an infielder gained him a place in baseball's pantheon of heroes. Archival film footage, photographs, and interviews with those who knew him best tell his story.
