Published Mar 2019

Anyone who's tuned in to a White Sox game during the past four decades has heard his calls and catchphrases: "Mercy!" "Rack 'em up!" "He gone!" Ken Harrelson is a man who knows how to talk and is brimming with stories, but even the most dedicated fans haven't heard them all; many of "Hawk's" most memorable tales are simply not suitable for television broadcasts. Now, in his memoir, Harrelson opens up on a wide variety of topics, from his volatile childhood, to life in the major leagues, to stints as a professional golfer and MLB general manager, and of course his storied years in the broadcast booth. He minces no words when reflecting on brawls, blowups, and encounters with figures ranging from Mickey Mantle and Arnold Palmer to Frank Sinatra and Bobby Kennedy. Packed with the enthusiasm and candor audiences have come to expect, Hawk is a no-holds-barred look at a singular life and career.

After 26 seasons as head football coach at Virginia Tech University, Frank Beamer is not only the longest tenured but also the winningest active coach of any major college program, and Let Me Be Frank contains his personal reflections on more than a quarter-century leading the Virginia Tech program. Beamer has directed his alma mater to 20 consecutive bowl appearances, including six BCS bowls, five top-10 finishes, and a trip to the National Championship Game in 1999 led by a freshman quarterback named Michael Vick. But success didn’t come immediately: he started his career at VT with four losing seasons in his first six years, including a 2-8-1 record in 1992 when many fans wanted him fired. He relates how he turned a mediocre program into a perennial power while sporting a clean NCAA record and a well-earned reputation as one of the most-respected head coaches in the nation. However, Beamer is regarded as an even better man than a football coach: he created a state-wide program to help children read, and in the aftermath of the deadliest campus massacre in U.S. history, he met with the parents of the victims and visited with each wounded student. He shares stories from his time spent both on and off the gridiron, including memories of generations of Hokies stars such as Vick, André Davis, Jim Druckenmiller, Corey Moore, Jake Grove, and others.

Examining a simple question—What is so special about Ohio State football?—this book provides a forum for the school’s greatest players and coaches from the past nine decades to express why they are so proud to be a part of the storied tradition that is Buckeye football. Many players took this unique and exclusive opportunity to set the record straight about a few topics that have never before been addressed, including Rex Kern revealing what happened in the bitter 1969 defeat to Michigan, Chris Spielman explaining why he almost chose Michigan instead of Ohio State, Cornelius Greene talking about the real discomfort behind his ulcers, and Joe Germaine detailing how he gave President Clinton’s Secret Service a scare. From Charlie Ream in the 1930s and Paul Warfield in the 1960s to Urban Meyer’s first days on the job after taking over after the 2011 season, What It Means to Be a Buckeye brings together a who’s who of Ohio State football icons in a fashion that no other book has ever accomplished, making it the ultimate keepsake for any fan of Buckeye football.
