My Own Particular Screwball an informal autobiography by Al Schacht [SIGNED]

Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1955. First Edition, First Printing. A Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing in a Very Good - dust jacket, of the first edition, first printing, of this humorous autobiography by Al Schacht, a professional pitcher who had a brief major league career pitching for the Washington Senators from 1919 - 192. He had a 14–10 won/loss mark (with a 4.48 earned run average) over his three-year career and also was highly regarded as a third-base coach. Schacht was quite humorous and was called "The Crown Prince of Baseball" due to his ability to mimic players from his spot on the base line. Schacht coached for the Senators for 11 years (1924–34) and then left to follow the Washington Manager (Joe Cronin) to the Boston Red Sox, where Schacht was a third base coach for two years. He then retired from baseball to begin a full-time career as a comic. After World War II, he opened a steakhouse where the menus were fashioned like oversize baseballs and offered dishes named after former players. The restaurant was popular with sports stars and stage and screen celebrities and Schacht would sometimes mount the restaurant's stage and entertain the public. The book's front free endpaper has been DATED ("April 16th 55"), HUMOROUSLY INSCRIBED, AND SIGNED BY AL SCHACHT. Item #3032
