Couldn't put this down. Has a lot of baseball history and it is great learning about this immigrant family and their who became a hero. I remember telling my wife much of the amazing stuff I learned in this book. It doesn't cover just baseball, but Hollywood of the era too (since he was married to Marilyn Monroe).
