Notes

Description
"Ken "Hawk" Harrelson and his signature calls have become synonymous with baseball during his five decades in the booth, first with the Boston Red Sox but for most of those years with the Chicago White Sox. His incredible knowledge of the game, hard-earned wisdom, and willingness to wear his heart on his sleeve have made him a beloved icon in the Windy City. But Hawk is much more than an award-winning announcer. As a player, he helped the "Impossible Dream" Red Sox reach the World Series in 1967 and made the American League All-Star team and led the AL in RBIs a year later. Though still in his prime, an injury convinced him to make an unprecedented decision: leave the game of baseball for a career in professional golf, during which he qualified for and played in the 1972 British Open. Hawk was just as colorful when he took off his spikes, rubbing elbows with Joe Namath and Arnold Palmer, displaying his unique sense of fashion on his own television show, and even becoming executive vice-president of baseball operations for the White Sox in 1986. In Hawk: I Did It My Way, Harrelson details his life on and away from the field with his usual candor and wit. From a sometimes volatile childhood to his World Series memories to his enduring friendships with some of the biggest names in sports, Hawk touches all bases"--Dust jacket flap.
