DateQuestionAnswer
2010-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are there some good Mickey-Whitey-Billy stories in the Stengel book "Forging Genius"? Could you give us one, please?
(hotstatrat from Toronto)
One more plug for me, thank you. The book is primarily focused on the years 1934-1949, so while Mickey and Whitey do come up, they aren't the focus. Since Stengel's relationship with Martin began on the Oakland Oaks, there is quite a bit about Billy and how, even as a teenager, he would mouth off to Casey and Casey would love it. Billy had some great teachers in baseball, like Augie Galan (though he didn't bother with Galan's plate discipline) and Casey (without ever reaching a level of maturity that Stengel had acquired by about 40, as detailed in the book).
