About this title

From Booklist:

Anyone who followed baseball during the 1950s will remember Hall of Fame third baseman Eddie Mathews, who played on two World Series teams (1957 and 1958) for the Milwaukee Braves and spent 16 years in the National League before being traded to the Detroit Tigers. Beginning with his days in Class D ball in 1949, Mathews follows his career and to a lesser extent his personal life in this appealing autobiography. Although the book isn't written in a sophisticated style ("the whole subject of player salaries today makes me want to puke"), Mathews' laid-back tone seems a perfect match with his down-to-earth personality. As someone who played with Hank Aaron (the two still hold baseball's record for most homers as teammates), roomed with Bob Uecker ("like rooming with the Marx Brothers"), and drank with Billy Martin ("if you backed him into the corner, he'd punch your lights out"), Mathews has plenty of stories to relay. Out of baseball now (he frankly admits his drinking cost him a number of coaching jobs), Mathews, like so many retired players, remembers his big-league days as the best years of his life.

Store Description

Sharing is the best surprise When we share our excess with others we¿re often surprised by what we feel, what changes in us, and who we get to know in the process. Sharehouse Goods exists to create that experience for as many people as possible. Sharehouse Goods receives excess stuff from individuals or organizations (our sharers), and then we liquidate that stuff, creating jobs for people in Milwaukee. The process is simple: we receive what people are willing to share, and then we sell it online or at our storefront, creating revenue for the sharers (to keep or to donate), and jobs for people who are struggling to find employment. There¿s a lot of sharing going on, and even more surprises, at Sharehouse Goods.
