Maximum Cool: 250 Anecdotes
Print edition. This book includes 250 anecdotes, including this one: In 1957, New York Yankee Billy Martin had a birthday party that turned into a fight at the Copacabana. Hank Bauer was arrested, and some other Yankees got their names in the newspaper, revealing that they had broken training. Angry, manager Casey Stengel quickly took action, benching most of the players involved, but not benching hitter Mickey Mantle, who had also been involved at the Capacabana. Asked about the discrepancy, Mr. Stengel said, "I may be mad, but I'm not mad enough to lose the pennant."
