Editorial Reviews

About the Author

It seemed inevitable that Kirby Arnold would become a baseball writer. He grew up in Rolla, Missouri, the heart of Cardinals country, and saw his first major league game at Sportsman's Park in St. Louis when he was four years old. He developed an instant affection for Stan Musial and the Cardinals, surpassed only by his interest in writing about sports. At age 15, while a sophomore in high school, he landed his first newspaper job at the Rolla Daily News.

Kirby has worked for The Herald in Everett, Washington, since 1984, and was the newspaper's executive sports editor for 10 years. In nearly four decades as a sports writer and editor, his stories and sections have won several awards from the Associated Press Sports Editors. His career at The Herald has spanned much of the history of the Seattle Mariners, and he began covering the team on a daily basis in 1999. Kirby and his wife have two children.

Format: Hardcover
The book is a delight. It's written for the average person, who may or may not be a baseball fan. There's not a lot of boring statistics. It's a look at the players and one particular remarkable coach. It made me laugh out loud, brought tears to my eyes and sometimes both at the same time. The book takes a look at the real people who have played inside the Seattle Mariners uniforms. Give it a chance just like we've given the Mariners a chance.

I absolutely loved reading this book and have even bought it as a gift. I recommend it to everyone that likes the Mariners. The way it is put together kept it fresh and interesting and I'll read it again and again!
