The cool thing for me is that my hard core love of the Oakland A's started much around the time that Rickey joined the team! My passion wasn't because of him, but once it did take off much like he did when headed to second!

I loved the story of him trying to break Lou Brock's single season record and the "okey-doke" play with Fred "Chicken" Stanley standing between second and third base to get picked off on Billy Martin's orders! Priceless! I also enjoyed the story about Rickey trying to get Reggie Jackson's autograph!

I am a huge A's fan, so this may be biased, but I think this is a good book! Even with his huge ego, Rickey is one of the greatest players of all time, and I enjoyed learning more about him! ( )
