Summary
If ever a figure changed the game of baseball, it was Walter O'Malley. Criticized in New York and beloved in Los Angeles, O'Malley is one of the most controversial owners in the history of American sports. He remade the major leagues and altered the course of history in both Brooklyn and Los Angeles when he moved the Dodgers to California. But while many New York critics attacked him, O'Malley looked to the future, declining to argue his case. As a result, fans across the nation have never stopped arguing about him--until now. Using never-before-seen documents and candid interviews with players, associates, and relatives, writer Michael D'Antonio reveals this complex sportsman and industry pioneer. Filled with new revelations about O'Malley's battle with New York power broker Robert Moses, his pioneering business strategies, and his relationship with Jackie Robinson, this is an intimate portrait of a man who changed America's pastime forever.--From publisher description
