My Bat Boy Days
Lessons I Learned From the Boys of SummerBook - 2008
One evening in 1956, Steve Garvey's father, a Greyhound bus driver in the Tampa Bay area, asked his young son if he'd like to accompany him as he drove the Brooklyn Dodgers to a spring-training game with the New York Yankees. For Garvey, an aspiring Little Leaguer, the opportunity stretched beyond his wildest imagination and marked the beginning of a legendary career in baseball. Garvey spent five years (1956-1961) as a bat boy, and this is his collection of indelible memories, fascinating profiles, and lessons learned--about the game and about life--from heroes such as Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax, and Mickey Mantle.--From publisher description.
