Dommie

booksMen like Dom DiMaggio were the anti-Mannys of baseball.  He played with dignity, and lived and died with dignity.

If you need a break from the Mannys of the game, do yourself a favor and pick up “The Teammates.”  David Halberstam chronicled the road trip DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky took to Florida in 2001 to see their dying friend Ted Williams. 

It’s a wee book with a rich lesson about the value of meaningful  friendships.

    Sounds like the “Manny’s” of the world could use this book as a catalyst for turning their lives around.

  2. Yeah, right. Manny’s going to read that one right after he finishes Kant’s ” Critique of Pure Reason. “
