A LIFETIME IN THE GAME

For more than a half-century-from rookie to honored baseball legend-Don Zimmer has lived his dream. He's played for the best managers the game has ever known. He's toured every major city in America. And he's shared the field with such greats as Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, Don Drysdale, and Sandy Koufax. Scoring six World Championship rings, Zimmer has overcome more than his share of obstacles to remain loyal to himself, the game, his fans, and to fifty-years of fellow teammates, managers, and coaches by way of old-school smarts, versatility, resilience, and a true love of the sport. Now, with scrappy humor, keen insight, and an opinionated bull's-rush honesty, Zimmer delivers a grand-slam memoir of the challenges, regrets, glories, and triumphs that only a world-class act who's been-there-done-that, could tell.

THIS IS ZIM ON:

* The fallout with George Steinbrenner that ended a twenty-five-year personal and

professional relationship

* His Fenway Park throw-down with Pedro Martinez that made national headlines

* His successful eight-year run as Joe Torre's right-hand man

* His lifelong friendships with his 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers team

* The effect of big-money on team solidarity

* His frank opinions of ballplayers-and the game-past and present

BILL MADDEN is an award-winning columnist with the New York Daily News who has covered baseball for 35 years and has been a national baseball columnist since 1988.
