Can you imagine a road trip from Mass. to Florida without a radio, CDs, etc., just talking about old times? Wonderful account of 3 old time baseball players and lifelong friends going to see their friend and former teammate for the last time. Good people. Good old days. Since this book was written, Williams, DiMaggio, Pesky, and the author Halberstam have died. A statue of the 4 teammates has been erected outside Fenway Park.
One of Halberstam's best, this book chronicles the car trip three long-retired Boston Red Sox players took to visit their former teammate, the ailing Ted Williams. Halberstam does a great job of bringing these baseball icons to life. In the process, you realize that perhaps the greatest DiMaggio was not Joe. Should be on every baseball fan's book list.
