"The reason McGraw was a great manager- and he was the greatest- was because he knew how to handle men. Some players he rode, others he didn't. He got the most out of each man. It wasn't so much knowing baseball. All of them know that. What makes the difference is knowing each player and how to handle him."The best part is when Bridwell describes punching out "Little Napoleon" (that was a knickname at the time) down the dugout steps.
