Overview

Max Schumacher began working for the Indianapolis Indians Triple-A baseball team in 1958, and became the general manager in 1961. The Indians have been one of America's premier minor league franchises ever since, presenting unforgettable stars and moments while playing in historic ballparks. In this unique retrospective, Schumacher recalls the upbringing in Indianapolis that inspired his love for baseball and shaped his working career, as well as stories that are unique to minor league baseball. Readers will be treated to the stories behind familiar names such as Herb Score, Harmon Killebrew, Dave DeBusschere, Denny McLain, George Foster, Dave Concepcion, Pedro Borbon and both Ken Griffey Sr. and Ken Griffey Jr. They'll also learn of the less notable players who had a major impact on the franchise ? including the most popular one of all, who was introduced as "Raaaaaazor Shines." Also included are the creative promotions that allowed fans to watch a game from the playing field, featured a Miss America contestant dancing the Charleston on top of the dugout between innings and had the Purdue University band marching across the outfield.   Schumacher also tells of the endless challenges of running a minor league front office, his conflicts with his Major League affiliates and the thrills that only championships can bring. Minor league baseball provides the heart and soul of the sport, and the Indianapolis Indians have been a leader within minor league baseball for well over a century. This book provides an inside account of their past 50 years, from the man who directed and witnessed their fortunes.
