Lavishly illustrated with rare photographs, Casey Stengel offers a fresh look at this sports immortal. Covered in detail are Stengel's relationship with Joe DiMaggio--with whom he had a running feud--his attitudes and treatment of African Americans, and his extravagant successes and profound failures. Anecdotal sidebars showcase his more amusing malaprops and convoluted statements, as well as a glossary of "Stengelese." 250+ photos.
