Casey Stengel may well be the greatest personality the game of baseball has ever known. But he was much more than that. Stengel was also a brilliant on-field strategist and handler of ballplayers. Compiled through exhaustive research and countless interviews, The Gospel According to Casey is jam-packed with hundreds of hilarious quotes by and anecdotes about Stengel, dozens of photos, along with chapters on Casey's strategies and teachings in all things baseball, including batting, pitching, fielding, base running, managing, and much more. The 30-page chapter entitled "A Discourse on Stengelese" is the largest collection of Casey quips, quotes, and wisdom ever assembled. Also included are Stengel's complete record as both manager and player, along with the full transcript of his classic, surrealistic testimony before Congress about baseball's anti-trust exemption in 1958. To quote Mickey Mantle, "I'd say my views are about the same as Casey's."
