I haven't read the book but I surely will. When I was a kid (I'm now 96), Lefty was player-manager of the San Francisco Seals (AAA, Pacific Coast League). The Seals used to play a double header on Sunday (9 innings for the first game, 7 for the nite-cap). I once saw Lefty hit pinch hit home runs to win both games. Tell me that's ever been done before or since. A bar-restaurant still bears his name near the St. Francis Hotel in downtown San Francisco. It was some journey from Butchertown to Union Square. Whatta Guy.
