"Nice work - learned something new"

Henry on Tuesday, September 08, 2009 2:45:43 PM

Comments: Great book - didn't know how instrumental Milwaukee was in the future trends of moving franchises and publically financed stadiums. Lots of info on the team behind the scenes. As a big Lew Burdette fan the only annoying thing was his name was spelled "Lou" in the book, but I guess he spelled it both ways.
