5.0 out of 5 stars "INTRIGUING, INSPIRING, UPLIFTING!", September 28, 2012
This review is from: One Last Strike: Fifty Years in Baseball, Ten and a Half Games Back, and One Final Championship Season (Hardcover)
One of the greatest managers of all time, Tony La Russa delivers a remarkable story of the comeback, and his challenging career. The inside story is told from his first day as manager, to fame and success. The author's stories describe how team unity made it all happen, talented players, why present moments are crucial, and much more. He explains the championship years, how he got there, and his unique coaching style. In addition, Tony La Russa reveals team secrets, personal relationships, victories and what brings success. He tells it like it is in pure honesty of how a team learned to study a game, why he was misunderstood as a manager, and what it took to make a great comeback. His inspiring stories convey that a team fought to win, despite all odds against them. We learn about the struggles, the most important games, and suffering from injuries. A portrait is painted of a team that had incredible spirit, which led to achievements. This endearing memoir is powerful, heartfelt, and inspiring throughout. Highly Recommended to all baseball fans!
