LOU: Fifty Years of Kicking Dirt, Playing Hard, and Winning Big in the Sweet Spot of Baseball

By Lou Piniella, With Bill Madden

Harper Collins

Lou Piniella’s career is defined by the indispensable role he played in the Yankees championship teams in 1977 and 1978, but that is just part of a historic baseball life that lasted almost 50 years.

Piniella was an accomplished manager, with his greatest achievement coming in 1990, when he led the Cincinnati Reds to an unexpected championship. He then went to the Seattle Mariners, where he had a great run as their manager. He led the Mariners to their first-ever playoff series win in the 1995 Division Series over the Yankees and to the most wins in a regular season in 2001. He then managed the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, where he could not get the expansion franchise going, and the Chicago Cubs, where he won a couple of division titles.
