He may be a political columnist and commentator by profession, but George F. Will's true passion is baseball. Men at Work profiles four men whom Will feels are exemplary of the best attributes of their respective positions: San Diego Padres' slugger Tony Gwynn, Baltimore Orioles' shortstop Cal Ripkin, Jr., Oakland As' manager Tony LaRussa, and Los Angeles Dodgers' pitcher Orel Hershiser. Now baseball fans can listen to sportscaster and fellow baseball enthusiast Bob Costas present Will's unique perspective on the game.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Will makes the point that it is not talent alone that makes baseball--and these particular men--so special. Baseball is a sport that demands intellectual energy, logic and--above all--hard work.
Filled with baseball history and anecdotes, Men at Work is a tribute to baseball that will leave you feeling as Will does: "Some men are like mountains, the closer you get to them, the bigger they become."
