Eddie Robinson’s career lasted sixty-five years and spanned the era before and during World War II, integration, the organization of the players union, expansion, use of artificial turf, free agency, labor stoppages, and even the steroid era. He was a Minor League player, a Major League player, a coach, a farm director, a general manager, a scout, and a consultant. During his six and a half decades in baseball, he knew, played with or against, or worked for or with many of baseball’s greats, including Hank Aaron, Yogi Berra, Joe DiMaggio, Bob Feller, Rogers Hornsby, Mickey Mantle, Satchel Paige, Jackie Robinson, Babe Ruth, Tris Speaker, George Steinbrenner, Casey Stengel, Bill Veeck, and Ted Williams. The lively autobiography of Robinson, Lucky Me highlights a career that touched all aspects of the game from player to coach to front-office executive and scout. In it Robinson reveals for the first time that the 1948 Cleveland Indians stole the opposition’s signs with the use of a telescope in their drive to the pennant. This edition features a new afterword by C. Paul Rogers III.

Review:

“A fun read, chock full of funny stories.”—New York Daily News (New York Daily News 2015-03-05)

"Fans regardless of the team allegiance will enjoy this book."—Gregg's Baseball Bookcase (Gregg Kersey Gregg's Baseball Bookcase 2015-12-06)

“Eddie Robinson was a fine ballplayer. He had a remarkably long, fascinating, and colorful career as a baseball scout and front-office man for many big league teams. I know of no book that gives as much insight into the front-office machinations in baseball organizations. [Eddie Robinson’s] autobiography will interest people inside baseball who remember Eddie, and many others will enjoy reading about the experiences of men who’ve been in the game.”—Charles C. Alexander, author of Ty Cobb  (Charles C. Alexander)

"Of those sixty-five years in baseball, I've known Eddie for fifty-five of them--as a dear friend, business partner, and as a terrific baseball player. Major league baseball needs more people like Eddie."—Brooks C. Robinson, Hall of Fame third baseman for the Baltimore Orioles (Brooks Robinson)

“Eddie Robinson was the most underrated and best clutch hitter I ever played against.”—Ted Williams, Hall of Fame outfielder for the Boston Red Sox
(Ted Williams)

“What can you say about Eddie? Good baseball man and a pretty good left-handed hitter in his day. He was one of our first basemen in the ’50s and fit in real good.”—Yogi Berra, Hall of Fame catcher for the New York Yankees (Yogi Berra)
