KIRKUS REVIEW

The manager of the New York Yankees gets the all-time biographical treatment in another book for the fans by the author of The Jim Thorpe Story, Christy Mathewson etc. A high powered, eulogistic narrative pictures Casey as a Kansas City sand lotter, a career player in the majors and then after retirement, in his familiar, and chance begotten, role as the man who led the New Yorkers to four pennants in the first four years of his tenure as manager. Diamond studded.
