Doug Harvey Autobiography. They Called Me God: The Greatest Umpire That Ever Lived.


Recommended Posts

Read the book about a week ago. Thought it was an interesting read. Agree that it wasn't GREAT, but definitely worth the read.


I put Harvey's book in the same class as "Planet of the Umps (Ken Kaiser), "Working the Plate" (Eric Gregg), and "Three and Out" (Tom Gorman).


For my money the best all around book on umpiring is "As They See It".


NOTE: I am a major book nerd.

Harvey's book is a quick read and as many have commented, Harvey toots his own horn quite often. He was very egotistical but he backed it up with his swaggering confidence, knowledge of the rules, and having integrity from start to finish. Definitely worth the read and Tony is correct, the best book all around is "As They See It".
