Summary Ä Hardball The Education of a Baseball Commissioner Ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Characters ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Bowie K. Kuhn Free download Hardball The Education of a Baseball Commissioner Rdball Kuhn reveals how the decisions were made and forthrightly challenges his detractors The commissioner offers many colorful anecdotes and strong opinions about baseball’s greatest legends from Jackie Robinson to Howard Cose. I was a preteen when the strike of 1981 took place so my memories or opinions of Mr Kuhn have faded from memory and further my preteen opinions of him are probably worthless Keeping in mind memoirs are generally self serving documents I was aware of this limitation but I didn t really care I read it as a history bookWhat s fascinating to read about his how Kuhn had to deal with some of baseball s colorful owners George Steinbrenner Charles FInley Ted Turner Bill Veeck and their litany of shenanigans Kuhn could never find a happy medium with Finley and Veeck He seemed to develop a reasonable working relationship with Steinbrenner and late in his tenure Turner but an argument could be made Steinbrenner and Turner were just blowing smoke at Kuhn The biggest subjects in the books are the 1981 strike and his departure I would definitely followup this book with a biography of Marvin Miller Kuhn jabs at Miller plenty some of it even seems below the beltHis departure if you like boardroom politics is interesting Kuhn places Cardinals owner Gussie Busch and Mets owner Nelson Doubleday as the villains of the drama Busch s grievances with Kuhn seem to be rooted in advertising and while Busch s positions are strident and he never yields they make some sense in you understand Busch s position Kuhn s ouster probably stung because seventy percent of the owners voted to keep him on However since there was organized ardent resistance in the National League again Kuhn places Doubleday and Busch as the driving force Kuhn is voted out What s ridiculous is the machinations to try and keep him around even after all is decided Kuhn for reasons I don t understand other than ego keeps his name on the replacement list Further the list of replacements all have commitments they re not ready to leave so Kuhn s interim stay is ridiculously long and the battle between him and the National League owners festers There is a particularly bad meeting between Kuhn and Doubleday where I would think in hindsight both men would regret the exchangeDuring the search for a new commissioner Turner comes off oddly I m not sure if he s politicking or being sincere The vote about Kuhn was a secret but personally I m convinced Turner voted with the anti Kuhn bloc So when there is a chance Kuhn could resurface as commissioner Turner places some very weird phone calls offering to vote for him Kuhn suggests gently Turner was making sure he didn t get left out of the majority and I buy that Would I have preferred a hundred pages of a 400 page book not be about Kuhn s ouster and finding his replacement Certainly but Kuhn is writing his story so that s going to happen After maybe sixty pages I d had enough The book has it uses as a historical document as long as you understand the limitations The writing is merely competent but there s enough interesting stuff in it to cautiously recommend it to a baseball fan Alvie Eats Soup even seems below the beltHis departure if you like

When you talk about a tell all book from the perspective of a baseball executive Commissioner Bowie Kuhn s Hardball should be considered the ultimate creation of such a curious subject Kuhn s hold no punches approach was elegantly told through the filter of his highly educated and professional background as well as his utmost confidence in nearly every aspect of his career as both a lawyer and professional sports commissioner As I came onto the scene in the post Kuhn era I cannot judge as to how often Bowie was in the right or how often he re wrote history in this autobiography But I can say that I was convinced of Kuhn s motivations for serving baseball to the best of his abilities along with his line of rationale His moment by moment account of his three election campaigns was phenomenal the reader definitely receives a new look at how stubborn owners can be as well as MLBPA leader Marvin Miller It was thrilling to hear from the other side of the aisle for a change as it showcases how much love respect and professionalism executives have or lack thereof for the sport they are involved in
