Riassunto: As the budding baseball superstar for the Boston Red Sox in 1967, Tony Conigliaro became the youngest major league player to hit 100 home runs, a record he still holds. He was on his way to becoming baseball's new hero until, after three short years, he was struck in the head by an errant pitch that nearly killed him. Because the blow damaged his keen eyesight, Tony's baseball career suddenly ended. In Tony C: The Triumph and Tragedy of Tony Conigliaro, author David Cataneo writes of the tragic end to Tony C's baseball career, and his triumph over losing his dreams by becoming a sportscaster on the west coast.
Tony seemed to be on top again with a good job, good looks, and good friends. But tragedy struck again in 1982 when Tony, only 37, suffered a massive heart attack that damaged his brain and confined him to a wheelchair. Tony Conigliaro's life seems to have been full of tragedy and Tony C: The Triumph and Tragedy of Tony Conigliaro is filled with remembrances from Tony's family, friends, and former Red Sox teammates. This extensively researched book, which includes rare photographs, provides the intimate details of Conigliaro's life, both on and off the baseball field. Tony C: The Triumph and Tragedy of Tony Conigliaro is a powerful human drama that will leave you with a lump in your throat and a tear in your eye.
