Host Scott Simon talks with author Jane Leavy about the great Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Sandy Koufax. Besides being the only pitcher in history to have pitched four no-hitters in four consecutive seasons, Leavy says that Koufax remains one of the classiest guys ever to play the game of baseball. Ms. Leavy's new book is called Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy (HarperCollins). [Note: The audio contains an ethnic slur, recounted as the author quotes from an incident during Koufax's career.]
