the last book I ever read (Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy, excerpt five)

from Jane Leavy's Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy:

He had no master plan for life after baseball except to live in the present tense. Asked once what he was doing to keep busy in retirement, Hank Aaron replied, "I'm being Hank Aaron." It is the career choice of former greats. But Koufax didn't want to grow old being Sandy Koufax. So his choices were limited.
