This book's title claim is no empty boast: National League players did actually nickname Hall of Fame umpire Doug Harvey "God." For three decades (1962-1992), this former barkeep ruled the diamond roost, influencing umpiring styles with his patient, meticulous calls. Now, in this "memoir and more", veteran sportswriter and author Peter Golenbeck (Dynasty; The Bronx Zoo) draws out never before revealed stories, observations and secrets from this octogenarian play caller. Certain to be one of the most truly fascinating baseball books of the season.
