‘Bill Veeck’s Crosstown Classic’ is Free eBook Today

Bill Veeck’s Crosstown Classic is today’s Free eBook of the Day.

The book is part of the University of Chicago’s new eBook series, e-book series, Chicago Shorts, a collection of works featuring selections of writings from the publisher’s archives.

Check it out: “Baseball Hall of Famer Bill Veeck was an inspired team builder, a brilliant marketer, and one of the greatest baseball men ever involved in the game. He was the owner of the Cleveland Indians, the St. Louis Browns, and the Chicago White Sox—twice. Bill Veeck’s Crosstown Classic is drawn from his uproarious autobiography, Veeck—As in Wreck, and relates his early days as an office boy in the Chicago Cubs organization and the rumpus, many years later, when he purchased the White Sox from the ‘Battling Comiskeys.’”

 The University of Chicago has the eBook available for free for the month of February.
