About the Author:

Leo Durocher (1905–91) spent nearly fifty years in the major leagues as a player and manager. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1994. Ed Linn (1922–2000) was the author of seventeen books, including Veeck--As in Wreck.

Review:

 “The delight of the book is its exuberance, its sense of a life lived at full tilt. . . . Durocher is a first-class raconteur.”

(Joe Flaherty New York Times Book Review)

“Hypnotic. . . . Durocher fought and scratched and made enough enemies so that one season he was expelled from baseball ‘for conduct detrimental to the game.’”--Esquire

(Roger Kahn Esquire)

“Mr. Durocher has somehow managed to be involved with more than his fair share of baseball’s mythic moments and situations. . . . This is Leo Durocher talking straight as a low line drive, not Leo Durocher ghosted up for Little Leaguers to hero-worship and copy. . . . If certain reputations lose out, the color and magic of baseball's past comes out a winner.”--New York Times

(Christopher Lehmann-Haupt New York Times)

"A 'must read' for anyone who loves sports. . . . He brings to life with Dickensian relish a whole raft of figures—Ruth, Dizzy Dean, Ducky Medwick, Mays, Branch Rickey."—Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly)

"If you love the old baseball stories . . . if you like the romance and swagger and tough talk of bnaseball in the pre-corporate skybox era, this is fun. Especially if you skip the stuff about the Cubs." (Joe Distelheim Hardball Times)
