Book review: Catcher in the Wry

One of my greatest discoveries was going into a used bookstore and finding a copy of Bob Uecker’s Catcher in the Wry for $2.  I purchased it about 6 years ago and have read it about 4 times now.  Each time I pick it up and it still seems to make me laugh.  If you have listened to Uke’s broadcasts a lot of these stories have been repeated on the air.  It humorously chronicles his career first as a baseball player, then a broadcaster and an entertainer.  If you can find a copy, I consider it good reading.
