|About the Book|
Nobody tells a funny baseball story like Joe Garagiola. He proved that in his first bestseller. Baseball Is A Funny Game. With Its Anybodys Ballgame, baseballs best storyteller is back, continuing to find the light side of the game. While Joe isnt Yogi Berras official biographer, he gives readers a personal view of his friend and Americas favorite philosopher: Yogi doesnt say funny things- he says things funny. He also looks at how the game has changed as he has spent the last forty years watching from the broadcast booth: With artificial turf, you just dry-clean. Groundskeepers are turning in their rakes for vacuum cleaners and spot remover.But Its Anybodys Ballgame is more than a baseball book. Joe takes you beyond the diamond, detailing everything from what its like to be bald (Cure baldness? Hey, its not contagious!) to the professional banquet circuit to sleeping in the White House.With stories about names you know, from Reggie Jackson and Mark McGwire to Johnny Carson and Barbara Walters, Joe takes you on a personal and funny ride from the field to the broadcast booth and beyond. With Its Anybodys Ballgame, Joe Garagiola hits a home run.
