Description

Nobody knows baseball like Kevin Kennedy!

Kevin Kennedy was a catcher and a Montreal, coach in the minors, a farm director for the Expos and a bench coach for Felipe Alou before moving on to manage the Texas Rangers and the Boston Red Sox. Now one of the sport's most respected analysts and commentators, he offers a fresh look at baseball from the viewpoint of a "lifer," capturing the intricacies of the professional game with a sharp analytical eye and unabashed candor, including:

The lengths to which teams and players will go to gain the competitive edge -- from doctored playing fields to performance-enhancing drugsThe politics and egos that keep the managerial carousel spinningThe often delicate balance when managing superstar players like Roger Clemens, Pudge Rodriguez, and Jose CansecoThe little-known world of the Latin American winter leagues

Intelligent, insightful, and engaging, Twice Around the Bases is a treat for anyone who truly loves the game.
