Baseball's Greatest Manager,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Weaver on Strategy: The Classic Work on the Art of Managing a Baseball Team (Paperback)
I've owned this book for several years but felt compelled to write a review after Weaver passed away on January 19, 2013. Weaver was one of, if not the first, managers to embrace what came to be known as Sabermetrics in how he shaped and utilized his team. This book explains his philosophies on hitting, fielding and pitching and contains insight that remains as valuable to winning baseball in the 21st century as it was when he managed the great Orioles teams of the 70's. Weaver's humor and irascibility run throughout the narrative. The man loved baseball and his contributions to the game will never be forgotten.
