  • Sal Maglie

    Recently, I purchased a book at a garage sale captioned Sal Maglie Baseball’s Demon Barber authored by Judith Testa. After reading it, I highly recommend it to all baseball fans young and old. Ms. Testa provides a detailed narrative of Sal “The Barber” from his youth to his rise to the major leagues with the New York Giants. She encapsulates Maglie’s rise to stardom in the 50’s including his intimidation and dominance over the Brooklyn Dodgers, his sale to the Cleveland Indians and subsequent and unbelievable move to the Brooklyn Dodgers and later to the Yankees and Cardinals. Suffice it to say, if you remember Maglie, or just want to learn about him, you will relive the rivalry between the Giants and Dodgers, which Maglie experienced from both sides of the rivalry. A great read, which does full justice to Sal Maglie.
