A Different Ball Game
He insisted on having the ultimate authority and the ability to override the decisions of general manager Frank Lane and field manager Joe Gordon. There were his late-night phone calls to his cousin Carl and others who worked in the front office. To Reggie Jackson and Mike Andrews he presented prewritten statements for them to sign.

I took a look back at some research I completed with colleagues several years ago. Consistent with one of the central premises of Green and Launius, our study of approximately one hundred team presidents and owners found that Finley had the lowest ranking on measures of providing individualized support, defined as behaving in a manner that demonstrates both respect for members of the organization and concern about their personal feelings and needs. The ensuing negative experience taught him some lessons about the ownership clique.

It may also have activated and amplified his narcissist tendencies. The book moves quickly and the authors write well. More than ever, voices like these are crucial to offer clarity and sanity in a volatile political climate and in an era of upheaval, uncertainty — and possibility.

A must-read for any baseball fan. Marvin Miller was a great labor leader who transformed the game. He should be in the Hall of Fame. I also recommend this book for people interested in labor history, particularly those with the misconception that the MLBPA is not a real union. The stories in this book are inspiring to all people who strive for more equitable pay and working conditions, at all levels of the economic spectrum.

A word of caution: Miller's writing style can be tedious. He spent too A must-read for any baseball fan. He spent too much time in the book going point-counterpoint with Bowie Kuhn's Hardball instead of letting the strength of his story speak for itself. Jul 26, Charlie Wagner added it. Miller is self-aggrandizing which may be expected.
After all, he had a major role in transforming all of baseball. However, what struck me is how petty and childish he is. Apparently unable to be a gracious winner, he behaves like a spoiled brat.
Review: Charlie Finley | Society for American Baseball Research
This book is replete with name-calling, gloating, and an unnecessary amount of political comments. I was hoping for a good history on this pivotal time in baseball but I couldn't get past what I saw as the egotistical rantings of a small man.

Miller was smart and pretty decent, if a little cocksure Jan 22, Kate rated it it was amazing. For better and for worse, Marvin Miller changed the game arguably more than any other person. The book is a fascinating look inside his brilliant, opinionated mind.
Warning: he spares no one. Jun 19, John rated it liked it. The author did effect a major change in baseball that benefited owners, players and fans alike. But, he is very proud of what he did and it shows here. May 11, Kristi rated it it was amazing. Obviously kind of one-sided, but an interesting account from someone who experienced and influenced so many pivotal moments in baseball's history. Oct 05, Damian Brew rated it it was ok. Lot of axes to grind. Easy to see why he's not in HOF. Not saying one way or the other.
May 26, The rated it liked it. An interesting read about the players' union, although the pomposity of the author is overbearing at times. Connor Anderson rated it it was amazing Aug 19, Mike rated it it was amazing Mar 28, David rated it it was amazing Mar 27, Alex rated it really liked it Dec 27,
