Overview

 

Acclaimed sportswriter Allen Barra exposes the uncanny parallels—and lifelong friendship—between two of the greatest baseball players ever to take the field.

Culturally, Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays were light-years apart. Yet they were nearly the same age and almost the same size, and they came to New York at the same time. They possessed virtually the same talents and played the same position. They were both products of generations of baseball-playing families, for whom the game was the only escape from a lifetime of brutal manual labor. Both were nearly crushed by the weight of the outsized expectations placed on them, first by their families and later by America. Both lived secret lives far different from those their fans knew. What their fans also didn't know was that the two men shared a close personal friendship—and that each was the only man who could truly understand the other's experience.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Ron Swoboda
…Barra works hard to construct a cohesive narrative about these two extraordinary players. If he misses the mark here and there, remember that his targets are in motion and the glimpses we have are anecdotal collages at best. Yet he succeeds in his main objective, getting us to view Mantle and Mays side by side. "I believe they knew each other better than anyone else knew them," the baseball writer Roger Kahn tells Barra at one point. "They were the only two men in America who understood the experience they had both been through." In this they resembled Matisse and Picasso, the two greatest artists of the early 20th century, who, like Mays and Mantle, always knew what the other was up to.
