Synopsis

Writing with Chicago Tribune sports columnist Verdi, Harry Caray recaps his decades in the booth, paying special attention to the owners he has dealt with, particularly Gussie Busch, Charley Finley and Bill Veeck. He also explains his philosophy of success in the booth, which is to think of himself primarily as a fan explaining the game to his fellow fans and pointing out players' failures as well as strengths. In this memoir, he recalls players he has admired, beginning with his all-time favorite, Stan Musial, and including Reggie Jackson, Richie Allen, and Ryne Sandberg.

Caray opens with his 1986 stroke, which inspires him to some ruminating ("I've always believed that if you live your life as a decent person, the umpire in the end will say you did it right") that sets up the rest of the book as subtle testimony to his own decency.
