About this title


An autobiography of the record-holding baseball pitcher and announcer for the New York Yankees spans four decades of American baseball and discusses personalities including Pete Rose and current boss George Steinbrenner.

From Booklist:

When he retired in 1983, Kaat had spent more time in a major-league baseball uniform than any other player. That alone merits a memoir. In addition to his ball-playing credentials--he finished just a few wins short of the 300 that would surely have won him a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame--Kaat also served as a coach under the now infamous Pete Rose, and for nearly a decade he has worked as a broadcaster for the New York Yankees. If at times a bit biased in favor of the ballplayers from his heyday (the 1960s), Kaat proves an affable tour guide to the world of big-league baseball. He's insightful when discussing what it was like to work with Rose as the latter's gambling problems worsened, and he offers interesting tidbits on current Yankees and other major-league stars such as Barry Bonds. This is not a tell-all book; there's little in the way of dirt or gossip but plenty of strong and learned opinion from a lifelong student of the game. Kevin Canfield
