Paul Dickson - Leo Durocher: Baseball's Prodigal Son

Upcoming Event
Saturday, March 25, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Dickson, author of The Dickson Baseball Dictionary, The Hidden Language of Baseball, The Joy of Keeping Score, and many other books on history, language, and sports, follows his Casey Award-winning biography of Bill Veeck with a look at the long and colorful life of the three-time all-star shortstop, Leo Durocher (1905-1991). Using primary sources and interviews with those who knew him, Dickson follows Durocher through many of the key moments in the history of baseball. First as a player then as a manager, Durocher was at the center of the action in and out of the park, and Dickson uses his firecracker subject as a lens to illuminate new aspects of the racial integration of the nation’s pastime.
