All-star Ball StarBook - 2008
From his anonymous days as a high school student at New Westminster Secondary School in British Columbia to his days with the North Delta Blue Jays and on to Major League Baseball, the meteoric rise of Justin Morneau is nothing short of remarkable. Indeed, as a teen Morneau believed he was cut out to be a hockey player and attended the training camp of the Portland Winter Hawks as a goalie. Thats why today, with the Minnesota Twins, he wears number 33in honour of his hero, retired NHL star goalie, Patrick Roy. But Morneau proved better at hitting a ball than stopping a puck, and the diamond was his greater destiny. He made his MLB debut in 2003 and three and a half years later he was named the American Leagues MVP, the first Canadian so honoured. Justin Morneau: All-Star Ball Star recounts the life so far of this extraordinary athlete.
