Pat Van Den Hauwe: My Autobiography

Pat Van Den Hauwe: My Autobiography by Pat Van Den Hauwe"Psycho" is a word rarely bandied about in soccer today. There is no place on the pitch for player contact, let alone the sort of hard, robust tackling that could earn a player such a nickname. But 25 years ago, things were different. Only when players really overstepped the mark were their names added to the referee's little black book. And Pat Van Den Hauwe had a reputation as one of the hardest players in the game. In a career encompassing some 401 Football League appearances for Birmingham City, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur, and Millwall, he notched up two league titles and a European Cup...

For that one year, the paths of these two baseball icons converged, the naissance of Mantle??s career poignantly juxtaposed with the slow descent of DiMaggio??s final season....
