About the Author

Ron Kittle played ten seasons in the majors before retiring in 1991 with 176 career home runs. After his playing career ended, Kittle managed independent minor league teams and also worked as a sports analyst for local and national television. He is currently a goodwill ambassador for the Chicago White Sox and chairman of Ron Kittle Charities.

Bob Logan wrote about thousands of players, coaches, managers, games, and assorted intriguing types in over thirty years as a morning newspaperman. He spent most of that time in Chicago, as a man for all sports and all seasons, covering them with a blend of humor and insight that provided his readers with a unique perspective. He died in 2006.

Roland Hemond is a legend within the offices of Major League Baseball. He started his career as scouting director for the Los Angeles Angels in 1961 and has since worked with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Baltimore Orioles, and Chicago White Sox. Hemond served as GM for the White Sox from 1970 to 1985 and is a three-time winner of MLB's Executive of the Year award (1972, 1983, and 1989).
