O'Malley

Mover and Shaker is author Andy McCues 's account of Dodger owner Walter O'Malley's life. O'Malley is best remembered (and for some, despised) for moving the Dodgers to Los Angeles. McCue reveals him as a rational, hard-headed businessman - whose management practices profoundly changed the business of baseball. Mr. McCue, formerly of the Wall Street Journal and a former president of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR,) spent the better part of two decades researching O'Malley. His book is published by The University of Nebraska Press.
