Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The son of an immigrant father and a mother from an old Maryland family, Kuhn finished Princeton and law school after World War II and later left a corporate law firm to become baseball commissioner in 1969. In often painful detail he tells of his struggles over unions, club moves, expansion, TV contracts, and drugs. Defending his tenure, he warmly praises friendsBud Selig, Howard Cosell, etc.and scorns foesNelson Doubleday, Ted Turner, and Gussie Busch, among others. He ends with a poignant account of his 1984 replacement by Peter Ueberroth. A good addition to sports collections as a comparison with Pete Rozelle's career in David Harris's The League ( LJ 10/15/86). Morey Berger, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, N.J.
