Very highly recommended. This book tells the dramatic story of a journey from playing in the ugly segregated South of the pre-civil rights days to the top of the baseball establishment with stops along the for insights into treatment of the players, the machinations of the owners not to mention life with the delightful Phil Rizzuto and the difficult, to put it mildly, George Steinbrenner. Anyone who loves baseball will love this book Warren Bender
