Frank Sullivan is a Red Sox Hall of Fame pitcher who is now on the way to becoming a Hall of Fame storyteller. This delightful book not only covers his professional career and many of the great players of that era but also has many delightful human interest tales of life away from the playing fields. He details the ups and downs of a baseball career at a time when there wasn't expansion of the leagues and free agency was not a part of baseball terminology. A really enjoyable, fun book for everyone. --Dick Bresciani, Vice President, Boston Red Sox
