Editors Tom Peyer and Hart Seely have forever captured Rizzuto's unmistakable voice in this collection, which gathers his funniest and most inspiring verses - from comments on Maris getting booed to explications of how the Red Sox control the weather. With an introduction by Roy Blount, Jr., and game stats following each poem, "O Holy Cow!" is a must for baseball fans, Scooter devotees, and everyone interested in major league fun.
