White Rat: A Life in Baseball

Whitey Herzog, Author, Kevin Horrigan, With HarperCollins Publishers $16.95 (228p) ISBN 978-0-06-015694-7
Herzog, a journeyman big-league player, has distinguished himself as a manager with the Kansas City Royals, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers (although he was something less than distinguished in the Lone Star State) and as a coach with the Kansas City A's, the New York Mets and the California Angels. His autobiography is notable because he is intelligent, realistic and tough-minded. He knows, for example, that it takes good players to make a good manager while a bad season will ensure the demise of the manager. Fans will find his observations on Dwight Gooden, Casey Stengel, Satchel Paige and Ozzie Smith absorbing and his ideas about the future of the game challenging. Photos not seen by PW. (March 31)
