Joe Torre hit one out of the park with this book. This is an exceptional baseball biography. I think that this is a must read for a New York Yankee fan.
My husband's quote, " Very insightful, great for any baseball fan!"
Here is the ultimate insider's account of a man, a team, and a dream that became destiny. Joe Torre takes us behind the scenes of one of the greatest seasons in the fabled history of baseball-and recounts his inspiring personal story, which captured the hearts and imaginations of fans everywhere. In Chasing the Dream, Torre tells how he rallied his team against incredible odds around a single common goal: winning the World Series. He also tells the powerfully emotional story of one brother's tragic sudden death and the agonizing wait for the heart transplant that could save his brother's life. Through the power of faith and family, Torre describes how he dared to dream the impossible both on the field and off. And, how in October of 1996 the impossible became a reality. Chasing the Dream is poignant reminder of why we love baseball-and how, sometimes, nice guys do finish first.
