Tony Lazzeri And Other Baseball Thoughts

February 28, 2017

In reading Paul Votano’s fine biography of the great player, Tony Lazzeri, (Tony Lazzeri A Baseball Biography) I am learning so much about baseball history, especially the great Yankees’ history.

Though I did not listen to him, no wonder my father who “suffered” not rooting for them, told me early on, make it easy on yourself and be a Yankees fan.

Even when I truly disliked them, I marveled at their great history.

In reading the Votano book about “Poosh Em Up’ (Lazzeri), I learned not only did the Yankees get the great pitcher Charles “Red” Ruffing from the Red Sox (as Votano wrote, them again, oh and I will slip this in, I do not see the Sele 2017 Red Sox, but time will tell on that one), but that his record with Boston was (39-96) in six seasons.

It is truly incredible he was 102 games over .500 as a Yankees’ hurler.
