Summary
Never-before-published family documents and new interviews enhance this detailed biography of quirky, legendary baseball player-turned-manager Casey Stengel, who led the New York Yankees to eight pennants and was known for keeping a live sparrow under his hat during ball games. Other ballplayers, like Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle, appear throughout, and while the focus is on baseball, author Marty Appel chronicles Stengel's full life off the field as well (including a brief, pre-baseball stint in dentistry). -- Description by Shauna Griffin
