About the Author

Rob Kirkpatrick is a senior editor at Thomas Dunne Books and the author of several books, including 1969: The Year Everything Changed and Magic in the Night: The Words and Music of Bruce Springsteen.


"Rob Kirkpatrick has written a warm and compelling biography of one of the best but least appreciated ballplayers in the history of our national pastime. Rob's book is a beautiful celebration of a beautiful life."--Timothy M. Gay, author of Tris Speaker: The Rough-and-Tumble Life of a Baseball Legend
