From the days of growing up working at the drive-in, to his time in the army, to his first stint on TV, and so much more, the reader learns about how he became the legendary broadcaster who fans came to adore. Buck also covers his time working with Harry Caray, the St. Louis Cardinals’ August A. Busch Jr. and Whitey Herzog eras, and all the way through the 1990s.
A perfect gift for any fan of the legendary play-by-play announcer!
