No one knows the game better than Whitey Herzog, the man who gave us "Whiteyball" -- the fast, aggressive style of play for which his teams were known. Although he is no longer building championship ball dubs, the game is still in his blood, as it was throughout a career that took him to every level of baseball, on and off the field.

In You're Missin' a Great Game, Whitey decries the state of the game, which has lost its way in the pursuit of power and Sports Center thrills. The extended playoffs and wild-card structure have combined to rob the game of its subtlety, allowing the richest teams to bludgeon everyone without having to learn the skills that made baseball so satisfying for so long. Whitey points out these ills and proposes detailed, concrete solutions that can make the game the national pastime once again.

You're Missin' a Great Game is a cry from the heart, by a man who knows the game, loves the game, and has brought excitement and excellence to the field everywhere he worked. When Whitey Herzog talks, all baseball fans listen.
