Nice little story about a boy named John McDonnell but always called "Six." He was the youngest of nine children and somewhat removed from his much older brothers and sisters. They moved around from Kansas to Oklahoma soon after the land run but after a few years moved back to Kansas. Six grew up mostly in Abilene, KS, and was a childhood friend of Dwight and Douglas Eisenhower. All he wanted to be was a baseball player and was able to follow that dream through various minor league and sandlot teams until eventually injuries forced his retirement. After a brief stay in the army during World War I he entered the printing business and worked for several different newspapers over the state until his death at age 91. There's a good story here, especially Six's friendship with the future president of the United States and what it was like to be an itinerate ball player in the early 1900's. But the reader may get a little bogged down with all the family history and genealogy as well as the stats from many of Six's ball games. While the endless documentation of the McDonnell's ancestors and what happened to "aunt Cora" are interesting and important to the McDonnell family (of which the author is a part, being one of Six's children) it does tend to bog down to the casual reader. Six sounds like an interesting character and I personally would have rather heard a few more of his stories instead of where the McDonnell's emigrated from. A readable book, otherwise, and worth an evening.
