Mr. Rickey's Redbirds: Baseball, Beer, Scandals & Celebrations in St. Louis
Biografía del autor
Mike Mitchell is a writer and entrepreneur. The Missouri native attended his first major league game at the age of five. He doesn't recall the score, but he vividly remembers Lou Brock's walk-up music and eating ice cream with a wooden spoon. This is his second book. His first, Show-Me Kings: Bootheel Ball, The Cookson Clan, & A Run-And-Gun All-Star Show, celebrated the history of high school basketball in Missouri. A former television producer and health care consultant, Mike has a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and an MBA from the University of Tennessee.
Descripción del libro
In the history of the St. Louis Cardinals, one figure towers above all, despite never pitching an inning or taking an at-bat for the team. For decades, the club was defined by his presence – or his absence. From 1876 to 1925, three different National League teams in St. Louis never finished higher than second place. Then everything changed. The St. Louis Cardinals became the league’s most dominant team. Over a twenty-one-season period, 1926-1946, the Cardinals won nine pennants and six World Series titles. Branch Rickey is the biggest reason why.
Mr. Rickey’s Redbirds, though, is not just his story. It’s the story of all the incredible players he scouted, signed, or traded and the talented executives he hired, fired, or deeply influenced over the years. It’s the story of baseball told through a city and a franchise that proudly claims more World Series titles than any other National League team.

Lo que debe evitarse
It's largely about the history of one major league baseball team - I can't use their logos but I can use their colors. https://www.mlb.com/cardinals
