Publisher's Description

"I want to thank the good Lord for making me a Yankee." —Bobby Richardson. Bobby Richardson played alongside Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Whitey Ford, Moose Skowron, and Yogi Berra during one of the greatest dynasties in baseball history, and he remains to this day the only player from a losing team ever to be named World Series MVP. Impact Player chronicles Bobby’s life story — from his early days playing American Legion ball in South Carolina through his storied career with the Yankee’s and his decision to walk away from the game in his prime. He shares never-before-told tales from the Yankees clubhouse during the historic ‘55–‘64 pennant runs, and he speaks candidly about the unlikely friendship this devout, clean-cut Christian shared with the fast-and-hard-living Mickey Mantle — a friendship that lasted for decades and would ultimately change the lives of these former teammates forever. The perfect combination of faith and baseball, Impact Player is a must-listen for baseball fans and historians of all ages. It not only offers a rare glimpse into one of those most celebrated dynasties in the history of the game but also paints a fascinating portrait of a life well lived and portrays the lasting rewards that come from knowing and loving God.

Author Bio

Bobby Richardson played second base for the New York Yankees from 1955 to 1966. During his career, he was named to seven All-Star teams (‘57, ‘59, ‘62, ‘63, ‘64, ‘65, and ‘66), he appeared in seven World Series, including three championship seasons (‘58, ‘61, and ‘62), and he remains to this day the only player from a losing team ever to be named World Series MVP. One of only 18 players ever to hit a World Series grand slam, Bobby still holds the MLB record for the most consecutive World Series games played (30). After retiring from MLB in 1966, Bobby went on to coach baseball for the University of South Carolina and later at Liberty University. An outspoken Christian, he played a vital role in the creation of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Baseball Chapel, and is still an active speaker and evangelist. Bobby lives in Sumter, South Carolina, with his wife, Betsy. They are the proud parents of five children and 15 grandchildren.

Editorial Reviews

"Any fan of baseball in the 1950s and ’60s will remember Bobby Richardson, a solid player on the field and a devout man off it. He writes about growing up in South Carolina, his eleven-year career as a Yankee, and life after baseball. While narrator Bill DeWees doesn’t imitate the many players Richardson played with, he lends a comforting, almost folksy, voice to this memoir. And that’s what it needs. As Richardson reminisces, DeWees solidly delivers his stories about his devotion to God, his relationship with Mickey Mantle, and the strains on his own marriage. While there’s nothing too earthshaking in either content or narration, but this is an enjoyable listen for fans of the era."
