Summary
For a time, baseball legends Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays were larger-than-life heroes to veteran sports biographer Allen Barra. Here, he explores his more mature realization that their athletic greatness didn't translate into personal perfection off the field. A true fan of the game -- and an insightful historian of their lives -- Barra examines what made the them two of the 1950s best players, and probes interesting parallels between their athletic success and personal foibles. - Description by Shauna Griffin
