Lamar Hunt: The Gentle Giant Who Revolutionized Professional Sportsby David A. F. Sweet
Lamar Hunt was best known as the founder of both the Kansas City Chiefs and the AFL, which later merged with the NFL to form the most successful sports league in U.S. history. Here, author David A. F. Sweet writes about how football was only one of the many interests in Hunt's life and business ventures. Hunt seemed to be omnipresent in the sporting world, having helped form Major League Soccer, the modern pro tennis tour, and the Chicago Bulls. This biography delves deep into Hunt's impact on many popular sports and reveals never-before-disclosed details of this soft-spoken man's true importance in transforming the sporting landscape into the massive industry that it is today.
