Excellent historical biography of one of baseball's true characters
Bill Veeck was always a controversial baseball owner among other owners, players, and fans alike. He was also a very entertaining owner. His autobiogrpahy is unsparingly honest and thoroughly entertaining. The book has aged well and the old-fashioned colloquilisms and vignettes add a lot to the mood and help mesh occurances around the ballpark with the social fabric of the times.Was this review helpful?

Baseball was never so funny
This is the guy who sent the midget up to bat. In his career, he owned several major league baseball teams, including the St Louis Browns and the White Sox. His son - part owner of several minor league teams - is just as nutty, funny and creative. You'll be laughing again and remembering why baseball is fun.Was this review helpful?
