Perfect package for the "Old Perfesser" May 13, 2002
In recent years Yogi Berra has been the leader in quirky baseball quotes in the public eye, but he learned it all from his manager Casey Stengel. Casey's folksy, sometimes nonsensical, oddly sage style of speaking left behind a wealth of quotable statements. In this nicely packaged hardcover, QUOTABLE CASEY puts together the most delightful and best of Casey's head-scratchers. The book makes a good gift for any baseball lover, especially fans of either the Yankees or Mets (Casey managed the Mets, too). To quote Stengel himself : "There comes a time in every man's life at least once, and I've had plenty of them." This book's another.
