Joe Cronin: A Life in Baseball

Joe Cronin: A Life in Baseball - Mark Armour Greatly enjoyed this bio of a shortstop turned player-manager, then manager, general manager, and then league president. In one broad life he was both the starting AL short stop in the very first All Star game, and the President of the league that brought the Designated Hitter to the American League.

Anecdotes, observations are backed up by solid reference; some of the general criticisms are shot down by the same. The chapters break along logical lines, with the biography focusing on both the subject and the relevant history around him.

Basically a great book to read.
