Beginning with his early years as a St. Louis teenager, Elston tells of Elston Howard’s love of baseball and his encounters with racism. His three decades with the New York Yankees include numerous anecdotes about fellow Yankee legends such as Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, and Yogi Berra. Written with a wife’s compassion and a sportswriter’s eye for detail, and with countless personal moments and rarely seen photographs, Elston is the touching story of one of baseball’s great players.
