This week I started the Walter O'Malley bio named "Forever Blue", by Michael D'Antonio. This is a fabulous work of research, providing a great deal of insight into the behind the scenes stories of the power brokers in New York in O'Malley's time. All of these details are matters over which I can be objective, because I never had reason to root for any NY baseball team. Its good to read this from an historical perspective. D'Antonio treats O'Malley with a great deal of respect, for he was a natural born leader who learned to love baseball in adulthood, as I have read it thus far.
