Paul O’Neill was the undisputed heart and soul of the four-time World Series-winning New York Yankees from 1993 to 2001. O’Neill epitomized the team’s motto of hard work and good sportsmanship, traits instilled in him by his friend, confidant, lifelong model, and biggest fan: his dad, Chick O’Neill.
In Me and My Dad, O’Neill writes from the heart about the man who inspired in him a love for the game and a determination to always play his best. O’Neill remembers the highlights of his own amazing career: the Cincinnati Reds calling him up to the majors, his first World Series, being traded to the Yankees — and taking part in their recent championship wins. He also reflects on his father’s untimely death during the 1999 World Series and on the farewell tribute his fans gave him during his last game in Yankee Stadium

I think at points this book is a little over the top, but O’Neill does a good job depicting the bond that he had with his dad growing up, and how that bond continued through his baseball career. There are areas though where the book loses some credibility. I mean you talk about the Orioles/Yankees playoff series and don’t even mention the Jeffrey Maeir play? Really? And then the Piazza/Clemens incident is never mentioned either. I don’t have as much of a problem with him speaking highly of Clemens in the book from the angle of a friend, teammate, and locker room neighbor, but shouldn’t you at least include a paragraph on that?

I did enjoy the stuff with Zimmer’s quips, and how he realized his tantrums might affect his kids. O’Neill was one of my favorites, and you can never question his heart when he stepped on the field was turned on to this book by a guy who grew up down the street from the O’Neills. He knew I was a big Yankees fan and thought I would like it. He was right. It is a very touching book from the relationship point of view. Well written, with lots of baseball nuggets and not too much ego or attitude involved. Cool Dad TShirt, Funny Daddy T-Shirt, Father’s Day Shirt, My Dad Rocks. Paul O’Neill is very gracious to the players and others he liked and doesn’t spend any time dissing anyone. Not your prima donna jock at all. I enjoyed this little book a great deal. It isn’t great literature, but it never made a pretense of trying to either. I mean, this guy has 5, that’s right, 5 world series rings. He is the real deal and seems like a really good guy as well
Cool Dad TShirt, Funny Daddy T-Shirt, Father’s Day Shirt, My Dad Rocks As a New York Yankee fan, I always applauded how Paul O’Neil played the game. He would do what it took to help his team win the game. It may have been a clutch hit, a great defensive play, a wise base running decision, or an 11 pitch at-bat to draw a walk. Paul O’Neil played the game the way it is meant to be played.
I like how this book is a dedication to his father, who taught and instilled the values and the mindset on how to play the game of baseball as well as the game of life.
Anybody who grew up in the backyard playing catch with their dad will love this book.
