Bob Feller is a true baseball icon. Along with such legends as Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Ted Williams, he is recognized as one of the greatest players of the twentieth century. In fact, he was voted the greatest right-handed pitcher in the history of baseball.

But Bob Feller is known for his quick wit as much as for his fastball. In Bob Feller's Little Black Book of Baseball Wisdom, the sharp-tongued Hall of Famer offers philosophical, anecdotal, and candid reflections on baseball and everyday American life. In the process he introduces us to such legends as Jackie Robinson, Ralph Kiner, and Joe DiMaggio the way he knew them--as baseball rivals, fellow sportsmen, and good friends. Bob Feller's Little Black Book of Baseball Wisdom is a treasure trove of down-to-earth advice for baseball fans of any generation.
