The hustler's handbook by Bill Veeck( Book )

9 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Welcome to the world of the hustler, the con man, the promoter extraordinaire. With a twinkle in his eye and his hand in someone else's pocket, Bill Veeck, baseball's most charming renegade, lets us in on the tricks of his trade: how to turn around a sinking ballclub; how to make any setback work to your advantage, be it a long losing streak or a doubleheader rainout; and best of all, how to get other people to foot the bill while thinking you're doing them a favor. Bill holds court on a variety of subjects, including: Why buying a bad team is more fun than buying a good one; The inside story of the 1919 Black Sox scandal, as reflected in the diaries of Harry Grabiner, club secretary at the time; The dangers for baseball incorporate ownership, the need to share broadcast revenues, and the inevitability of free agency- three topics on which he was two decades ahead of his time. This book also includes an afterward especially written for this edition, and based on interviews held shortly before Veeck's death, in which he discusses his hopes to shatter baseball's last barrier by finding and developing women who could make it in the major leagues. -- from Back Cover
