An American success story in terms men and boys will appreciate- from sand lot to big league. Bob Feller of the Cleveland Indians tells his own story of how an Iowa farm boy became a great pitcher, tells it in story form, recapturing his own memories of boyhood, of his father's training, of pitching as a semi-pro for a time, then- at 17- being ""bought"" by the Indians --of ten years in the American League- and almost four years in the Navy. There's a good deal of inside stuff on the political side of a ball club- but throughout you never lose the boy and the man. He tells of his romance and marriage- the ""best contract he ever made"". A book for all baseball fans.
