This was such an interesting autobiography. I come from a family of huge baseball enthusiasts and I just know that if you have any level of interest in the sport, you would absolutely love this book. It was extra fun to hear all of his behind-the-scenes stories about that era of baseball - and as he was good friends with Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, and more, there are some great stories! We also learn about his journey from a small town boy to the top of the major leagues.
Bobby Richardson invested his entire career in the New York Yankees, and eventually retired -some would say early- primarily to spend more time with his growing family. He attributes both his success in sports as well as his family, including almost 60 years of marriage to his wife, Betsy as coming from a relationship with Jesus, thus the title "Impact Player". Bobby's very clearly stated goal is to have an impact for Christ, and he has not wavered in that, even from the very beginning. He is also seemingly quite transparent about things he wishes he could change, or ways he's failed.
All in all, Bobby Richardson & David Thomas give us a well-written, engaging memoir that is great for non baseball fans, and (especially!) baseball fans alike. I recommend it!
