A King’s Legacy: The Clyde King Story,
Forward by Yogi Berra
Clyde King’s seven decades in the
game has taken him from pitcher for the fabled Brooklyn Dodgers to coach,
scout, manager, and general manager, to his present prestigious position as
special adviser to George Steinbrenner, owner of the New York Yankees. King has
done it all in baseball. He played with Pee Wee Reese and Roy Campanella,
managed both Willie Mays and Hank Aaron, and even pitched against Fidel Castro.
He became a friend to many of the luminaries of his time -- from presidents to
movie stars to religious leaders, especially Billy Graham. King was revered by
those he has helped along the way, including Catfish Hunter, Goose Gossage, and
Lou Piniella. A King's Legacy gives an insider's account of baseball's
glory days of the past half century in an upbeat anecdotal style, while
illustrating King's nurturing of family values and old-fashioned virtues
developed by sports -- honor, loyalty, and courage.
