Download á The Soul of Baseball É PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Of the game Posnanski writes about that love and the one thing that O'Neil loved almost as much as baseball jazz BASEBALL AND JAZZ is an endearing step back in time to the days when the crack of a bat and the smoky notes of a midnight jam session were the sounds that brought the most joy to a man's hear. Now that I ve finished reading it I can t really classify The Soul of Baseball It s not really a baseball book It s certainly not a biography I can t even say it s a portrait of a man The Soul of Baseball is so much than any of that I guess that than anything I can call it a gift A gift Yes I like that The Soul of Baseball is the result of sportswriter Joe Posnanski spending a little than a year traveling the United States with Buck O Neil Buck a man I ve never met but felt like I ve known my whole life was widely known as America s ambassador to baseball and especially the Negro Leagues Although he never played in the Major Leagues Buck O Neil was the first Black man to coach at that level He was also a longtime scout More importantly though he was a fun charismatic and loveable guy who made you laugh cry and thinkAt the book begins Buck is 93 going on 94 and still maintaining a full schedule of promotions interviews public appearances and campaigning on behalf of other former Negro League players for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame Posnanski does an excellent job of weaving poignant stories from O Neil s past into the present day s story There are also references to past stars like Josh Gibson Satchel Paige Ernie Banks and others And it all seems natural because it is all naturalPosnanski shows Buck to be an example of how free and easy a man can live when he doesn t hold onto the negatives in life By painting the portrait of O Neil that we see in The Soul of Baseball we readers can see how much our burdens bring us down And Buck shows us that we don t have to be that wayGoing in I knew how the story would end Still The Soul of Baseball made me feel good Buck O Neil s words and life are good life lessons that come across in an impactful way without the slightest bit of preaching The further I read I kept thinking that I want to have that man s disposition when I get that old The Soul of Baseball was an excellent excellent read I m pretty sure I ll reread this one every couple of years for the rest of my life You should too
