Summary
Stengel was the only person in baseball to wear the uniforms of all four New York teams: the Dodgers, Giants, Yankees, and Mets. He started as a player in 1912, and became a manager in 1934. Appel describes how Stengel revolutionized the role of manager and won 10 pennants and seven World Series with the Yankees. He digs into the quirks and foibles of the private man who was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966, one year after his retirement
