About this title


Not your typical sports book. This tells about the life of an amazing athlete who played professional baseball in both major leagues. Along the way he shared the playing field with nearly all the great players of the post WWII era. They became his friends. He tells us about them in never-before published stories. From Jackie Robinson, to Mickey Mantle, to Al Kaline, to George Kell and many others, Don Lund gives us his personal anecdotes. Author James Robert Irwin superbly describes Lund's legendary career as a three-sport superstar at The University of Michigan, followed by coaching Michigan Baseball to a world championship. He also relates Don's second career as the only man in baseball to serve the same major league team as a player, a scout, a coach, and a top front-office manager. The Detroit Tigers fulfilled his hopes. The University of Michigan fulfilled his dreams. And he never applied for any of these jobs. The book is a quick-read, humorous tale of fascinating sports memories. You can't put it down, and you won't give it away.
