Someone else has been reading lately

Steve Rushin's column in the new issue of Sports Illustrated is about Karl Cicitto, a collector of baseball books who has some 4,000 volumes in his house. As you can see even from the first paragraph in the free online preview of the column, Karl's pick for best baseball book is Veeck As in Wreck by Bill Veeck, available from the University of Chicago Press.

Through working on Veeck as in Wreck led to me and Stacey getting to have dinner with his widow, Mary Frances Veeck, who was utterly charming, a splendid raconteur, and who asked me what I thought of Tony LaRussa, whom she and Bill gave his first managerial job.
