Bill Veeck: Baseball's Greatest Maverick

3.6 5
by Paul Dickson
 

See All Formats & Editions

A masterful biography of one of most influential, sharp-witted, and often zany figures in baseball history, whose drive and imagination helped transform the game and the country. As owner of the minor league Milwaukee Brewers, and then the Cleveland Indians, the St. Louis Browns, and the Chicago White Sox-twice-Veeck truly changed the face of baseball.

Loved this book, but my Nook had no photos. Im not sure if this is a Nook issue or a publisher issue. If this is a Nook issue I am going to consider another ereader. Any suggestions?? Amazing read for those looking for a good baseball book

Dickson does an excellent job of capturing Veeck in all his flavors, including an empathic view of the wizard from behind the curtain, the man we never knew. Not only is it a great story, but a fascinating look at a significant chunk of baseball history. It sheds new light on the era that saw the end of baseball's racial barriers. It should be required reading for suffering Cleveland sports fans who, like me, are too young to have been there the last time the Tribe won the series, that's not to take anything away from the insight fans in Milwaukee, St. Louis and Chicago will gain. More generally, if you are a fan of great biographies, read this book!
