Glorious Fun in the Minor Leagues
Back in 1983 Roger Kahn, a reporter, paid $15,000 to buy into an A minor league team for which Kahn received the team presidency, the financial losses of previous seasons and this book. This chronicle of Kahn's one season team presidency mixes conversations he had with Branch Rickey about running a team, a short overview of upstate New York where the team played, and consistently hilarious anecdotes right through that triple header (well, 2 and a half game header) the team played at the end of the season.Was this review helpful?

Better than The Boys of Summer?
In The Boys of Summer Roger Kahn reminds us of something which, deep down, we all know: that our heroes are mortals. In Good Enough to Dream he reminds us of something we often forget, that Everyman is also a hero. If you enjoyed The Boys of Summer you should love this.Was this review helpful?
