Title : "The Passion of Baseball" by Bob Wirz
Category : Books
Bob Wirz has lived out his childhood dream, growing up in a tiny Nebraska town and cherishing a lifetime working in major league baseball. Using humor and sentimentality plus rare photos, he relives many an exciting moment from an unlikely beginning to being involved with the sport's greats in World Series, All-Star Game and Hall of Fame settings. He was the Kansas City Royals' first publicist and chief spokesman for more than a decade for baseball commissioners Bowie Kuhn and Peter Ueberroth, then successfully ran his own sports public relations and marketing company with clients such as Major League Baseball, Little League, the Rolaids Relief Man, IBM, Just For Men haircolor and Baseball America magazine. Wirz also shares the tear-jerking success and near-success stories he has written for many years about players striving for the major leagues through the wilderness of Independent leagues. FROM THE CORNFIELDS of rural Nebraska TO New York City SKYSCRAPERS and baseball’s executive suite, Bob Wirz takes us on a one-of-a-kind journey through his life with baseball.
