If you enjoy a great read on the national pastime, make sure you’re following Baseball Books. This MLB Pro Blog aggregates reviews of baseball books from MLB.com writers and our MLB.com/blogs community. The latest post is Paul Hagen’s review of Mel Proctor’s new book on legendary manager Gene Mauch, “The Little General: A Baseball Life”:
Mention Gene Mauch to most fans, and one-dimensional portraits will likely emerge. A stern, cold, old-school manager. The manager who misused his rotation down the stretch in 1964 as the Phillies squandered a 6 1/2-game lead with 12 to play. Or the guy who managed the most years in the big leagues, 26, without taking his team to the World Series.
In “The Little General: A Baseball Life,” Mel Proctor introduces the more well-rounded human being who is widely considered to have possessed one of the best baseball minds of his era.
