About this title

Synopsis:

Drawing on extensive interviews, the Pulitzer Prize-winning commentator profiles four key figures in professional baseball--outfielder Tony Gwynn, pitcher Orel Hershiser, shortstop Cal Ripken, Jr., and manager Tony LaRussa

Review:

In Men at Work, political pundit George Will breaks baseball down, parsing it into essential tasks: hitting, fielding, pitching, and managing. Why do some succeed grandly while others are more apt to whiff? By analyzing the way Tony Gwynn, Cal Ripken, Orel Hershiser, and Tony LaRussa approach the game and do what they do, he finds striking similarities in intelligence, dedication, drive, and desire.
