I Live for This!
Baseball's Last True BelieverBook - 2007
Tommy Lasorda is perhaps baseball's most famous and popular figure. At 79, after 20 years of managing and 57 years with one franchise, this Hall of Famer still suits up in Dodger Blue every day. He also keeps a travel schedule that would dizzy the most frequent fliers. Lasorda went from a scrawny, overlooked Italian kid of average ability to become one of the world's most recognizable baseball faces--and he fought for it every step of the way. Plaschke takes us inside the day-to-day world of this baseball great to reveal a side of Lasorda that few people know. Along the way, we're treated to some of the most outrageous stories in sports, and we discover Lasorda's unshakable opinions about what plagues baseball today.--From publisher description.
