Read from March 12 to 18, 2012

I feel like, were I 20 years older and read this when it first came out in the early 80s, I would've found it amazing. Instead, not so much. Kinda' want to give it 2.5 stars, but it's not an option.

At times the book gets lost in bookkeeping, but the stories about the period of his life in Milwaukee and Cleveland were great.

Still, for anybody interested in Veeck and/or baseball history of the 40s through 70s, it's an important book to read. Again, it might just be my problem. Those are probably the exact portions of baseball history that I happen to be least interested in. So it's me, not you.
