Branch Rickey: Baseball’s Ferocious Gentleman


“Lowenfish presents this baseball revolutionary not as his admirers or his critics (or Rickey) saw him but as he was, and one can ask nothing more from a biography.”

–Chris Lamb, Choice

“It’s about time people get to know the many dimensions of this extraordinary legend.”
–Former New York governor Mario Cuomo (who played for a Rickey-run Pittsburgh Pirate farm team)

“This book provides a vivid description not only of Rickey’s life during this time, but of the entire sport itself.”
–Anthony Basich, Inside Game
