One Man's Dream
December 11, 2012
Like many people who grew up in the Kansas City area in the 1970s, I was a big Kansas City Royals fan. It was a great time to be a baseball fan. The Royals went to the playoffs several times during my childhood, culminating with their only World Series title in 1985.
From the time I went to my first Royals game in 1975 until now, my all-time favorite Royal was Frank White. He played second base with a skill that was quite rare for the time, becoming one of only three Royals to have had their numbers retired. Frank has now written his memoirs, One Man's Dream: My Town, My Team, My Time. It's a fascinating look back on Frank's life, from his childhood in Kansas City to his storied career with the Royals, to his acrimonius departure from the team's broadcast booth in 2011.
I highly recommend this book to any Royals fan who wants to relive their glory years with one of their best players.
