The Teammates: A Portrait of a Friendship - Taschenbuch

2004, ISBN: 0786888679

[SR: 309425], Paperback, [EAN: 9780786888672], Hachette Books, Hachette Books, Book, [PU: Hachette Books], 2004-04-28, Hachette Books, More than 6 years after his death David Halberstam remains one of this country's most respected journalists and revered authorities on American life and history in the years since WWII. A Pulitzer Prize-winner for his ground-breaking reporting on the Vietnam War, Halberstam wrote more than 20 books, almost all of them bestsellers. His work has stood the test of time and has become the standard by which all journalists measure themselves.The Teammates is the profoundly moving story of four great baseball players who have made the passage from sports icons--when they were young and seemingly indestructible--to men dealing with the vulnerabilities of growing older. At the core of the book is the friendship of these four very different men--Boston Red Sox teammates Bobby Doerr, Dominic DiMaggio, Johnny Pesky, and Ted Williams--who remained close for more than sixty years.The book starts out in early October 2001, when Dominic DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky begin a 1,300-mile trip by car to visit their beloved friend Ted Williams, whom they know is dying. Bobby Doerr, the fourth member of this close group--"my guys," Williams used to call them--is unable to join them.This is a book--filled with historical details and first-hand accounts--about baseball and about something more: the richness of friendship., As baseball legend Ted Williams lay dying in Florida, his old Boston Red Sox teammates Johnny Pesky and Dom DiMaggio piled into a car and drove 1,300 miles to see their friend. Another member of the close-knit group, Bobby Doerr, remained in Oregon to tend to his wife who had suffered a stroke. Besides providing a poignant travelogue of the elderly Pesky and DiMaggio's trip, David Halberstam's The Teammates goes back in time to profile the men as young ballplayers. Although it is enlightening to learn about Doerr, Pesky, and DiMaggio, the leader of the group and star of the book is Williams. Halberstam portrays the notoriously moody and difficult Williams as a complex man: driven by a rough childhood and a fiercely competitive nature to become perhaps the greatest pure hitter of all time while also being a magnetic personality and loving friend. While there is nothing exceptionally unusual about old men who have stayed friends (plenty of people stay friends, after all), baseball gives this particular relationship a unique makeup. Unlike most friendships, that of Williams, Doerr, Pesky, and DiMaggio was viewed all summer long by hooting, hollering Red Sox fans. As such, their bond is forged both of individual accomplishment, win-loss records, numerous road trips, and, since they played for the Red Sox, annual doses of disappointment. Halberstam, author of Summer of '49 and October 1964 is the ideal writer to tell two equally intriguing stories, both rich in America's pastime. Although he occasionally drops himself into the narrative, one expects that of Halberstam and gladly accepts it in exchange for the highly readable exposition infused with poetic majesty that has become his trademark. --John Moe, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 2327, Arts & Literature, 2365, Ethnic & National, 2376, Historical, 2396, Leaders & Notable People, 3048891, Memoirs, 2419, Professionals & Academics, 2429, Reference & Collections, 1043842, Regional Canada, 2430, Regional U.S., 2437, Specific Groups, 2446, Sports & Outdoors, 300961, Travelers & Explorers, 11314, True Crime, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16315, Baseball, 26, Sports & Outdoors, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2447, Baseball, 2446, Biographies, 26, Sports & Outdoors, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

NOW IN PAPERBACK! From bestselling author David Halberstam comes the story of the 60-year friendship among baseball greats Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Dom DiMaggio, and Johnny Pesky, all of whom played baseball together with the Boston Red Sox in the late 1940s.Ted Williams always remained not only a revered and visible baseball legend, but his talent and appeal made him one of the most recognizable figures in American sports history. With his recent passing, interest in his life has only grown. Halberstam frequently interviewed Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Dom DiMaggio, and Johnny Pesky. In this book, he will offer a rare glimpse into the special lives and friendships of these men. It will be a must-buy for every baseball and sports fan who ever wanted to know more about these legends and the type of friendship that comes only through sharing the trials and triumphs of playing for one of the greatest major league baseball teams in history.But this book does even more as it will focus on the more than 50-year friendship among these men. This will be a book about loyalty and the bonds of friendship. It will include stories of their glory days with the Boston Red Sox, their lifelong friendship, and the reaction of the remaining three to the death of Ted Williams. A crystalline gem of work about old pals, in theory, but really about everything there is.´´ - Chicago Sun-Times Buch (fremdspr.)
