Re: “Sparky” by Carl P. Maggio
To Whom It May Concern:
I would highly recommend that you give very strong consideration to this book about one of major league baseball’s greatest characters and ambassadors. The story of Sparky Anderson’s career is fodder enough to temp any sports aficionado. Add to that an insight to the personal side of Sparky, which can only be properly told by someone who grew up with him, and stayed friends with him until he passed. Nobody can tell this story like Carl Maggio.
Over the course of 15 years we had the privilege of getting to know Carl and Sparky on a professional and personal level. The totally unique quality and salability of this book is going to be the first-hand account of a legendary person who was not caught up in the trappings of fame and fortune. Sparky Anderson was a very regular guy, and nobody could relate this like someone who knew him well enough to call him “Georgie”.
I loved Carl Maggio’s first book “Swinging For The Fences”, and eagerly look forward reading “Sparky & George; The Unlikely Patron Saint Of Baseball.
