Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-------------BASEBALL IS A FUNNY GAME by Joe Garagiola. The jokes in Garagiola's best-seller, In mid-June of 1950, Garagiola was hitting .347. During a game against the Dodgers, he laid down a bunt and raced to first. Brooklyn second baseman Jackie Robinson went to take the throw, but had trouble finding the bag with his foot. Garagiola, trying to avoid colliding with Robinson, broke stride and fell. He suffered a shoulder separation, caught only 30 games that year, and was traded to the Pirates in 1951. He played in a career-high 118 games and hit .273 for the last-place Pirates in 1952. His broadcasting career began in 1955 with the Cardinals. In 1961 he began working for NBC's "Major League Baseball," where he continued until the end of 1988. In 1965 he replaced Mel Allen on Yankee broadcasts, then in 1969 moved to hosting NBC's daily "Today Show" until 1973. He remains a national celebrity known for one-liners, reminiscences of his days as a Pirate, and Yogi Berra anecdotes. His first book, You are bidding on the stated Bantam Edition from 1962. Other than some wear and tear and creasing to the cover, the book is in excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight (see photo).
