In his autobiography, Bob Broeg's anecdotes and revelations take the reader on a swift, heart-warming voyage. Stories about players, managers, owners, games, seasons, personalities, writers, and Broeg himself, fill the book and the reader's heart. Broeg is a Hall of Fame sportswriter with a myriad of accomplishments, including nicknaming Stan Musial, helping to write the first major league baseball pension plan, and uncovering the facts about the Cardinals and Jackie Robinson. His invigorating biography does not exclusively focus on baseball. Boxing, football, basketball, hockey, soccer -- if a sporting event in the twentieth century grabbed your attention, Broeg was most likely an eyewitness, gathering insider stories and insights.
