A King’s Legacy: The Clyde King Story,

Forward by Yogi Berra

 

 

Clyde King’s seven decades in the game has taken him from pitcher for the fabled Brooklyn Dodgers to coach, scout, manager, and general manager, to his present prestigious position as special adviser to George Steinbrenner, owner of the New York Yankees. King has done it all in baseball. He played with Pee Wee Reese and Roy Campanella, managed both Willie Mays and Hank Aaron, and even pitched against Fidel Castro. He became a friend to many of the luminaries of his time -- from presidents to movie stars to religious leaders, especially Billy Graham. King was revered by those he has helped along the way, including Catfish Hunter, Goose Gossage, and Lou Piniella. A King's Legacy gives an insider's account of baseball's glory days of the past half century in an upbeat anecdotal style, while illustrating King's nurturing of family values and old-fashioned virtues developed by sports -- honor, loyalty, and courage.
