Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The latest from prolific sportswriter Shannon is a very entertaining digest of more than 100 lesser-known stories about baseball legends past and present. Some hilarious, some heartwarming, all the anecdotes will be of interest to fans. Patrick Cullen adeptly conveys the diverse personalities that have shaped the game and woven it into the national fabric--from the fiery temper of Oriole's manager Earl Weaver to the good-natured personality of Ken Griffey Jr. A welcome addition to sports collections in public libraries.--Mark Tierney, Charles Cty. Pub. Schs., Waldorf, MD Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
