Long Description

The first comprehensive biography of this Philadelphia Phillies’ icon, this book provides fans a detailed look into the life of legendary third baseman and feared slugger Mike Schmidt. Schmidt was not always a fan favorite—he was somewhat misunderstood and seen as standoffish by many fans who referred to him as “Mr. Cool.” Author Rob Maaddi dispels the myths by transporting readers back to key events in Schmidt’s life and Hall of Fame career that make him come alive and help to create an understanding of the hardworking ballplayer he really was. The book not only uncovers the real man behind the remarkable numbers, but also allows fans to relive the most memorable moments from Schmidt’s legendary career including his 500th career home run and the 1980 World Series victory. It also delves into his close relationships with teammates like Pete Rose, Dick Allen, and Garry Maddox. This satisfying portrait of one of the games’ most celebrated players is one that baseball fans of all ages will not want to be without and will cherish for years to come.

Sorry folks for the slow and spotty service to our site yesterday (1/10/2013). There was work being done in the area and it caused general service interuptions.

We experienced poor internet accessability and noticed far fewer visitors than normal to the site. There was a point over night when all internet service went down. We contacted our ISP this morning to find out they were performing maintenance in our area and had to shut down a hub station at one point.

The maintenance in general caused a bottle neck for data in our area and shutting down the hub took us completely off-line for almost an hour.

This is regretable but well beyond our control. We are sorry if this impacted you and access to our data.
