When he stopped playing professional baseball in 1947, Rick Ferrell retired as the longest playing catcher of all time. Yet even after 18 seasons and 8 All-Star game appearances, Ferrell went on to round out a sixty-six year career in professional baseball as a coach, manager, scout and front office executive. This biography includes highlights of Ferrell's career, confidential letters written as the Tiger's General Manager, 15 interviews with Ferrell's associates, as well as thirty-four photographs, some never before published.
