Rate this:
In Zim, one of baseball's most eccentric characters and storytellers chronicles his life in the sport, from playing high school ball in Cincinnati to his current role as bench coach for the New York Yankees. Don Zimmer's career has crossed paths with the game's most memorable people and events, and Zim includes them all, from Babe Ruth, who lauded Zim's team a year before he died, to the Brooklyn Dodgers, who drafted him as a potential heir to shortstop Pee Wee Reese, to Casey Stengel, who Zimmer played for as one of the original New York Mets. Accounts of his tragedies -- two life -- threatening beanings -- and triumphs -- managing the San Diego Padres, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, and Chicago Cubs -- give a panoramic history of both the man and the sport.
