The book has over 40 pictures and chronicles Gene's unique and amazing career, winning world championships in Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association. Gene Conley is the only 2- sport athlete to win world championships in 2 major pro sports, the World Series in 1957 with the Milwaukee Braves and 3 NBA World Championships with the Boston Celtics; 58/59, 59/60, 60/61, making MLB All Star teams in 1954, 1955 and 1959 and Basketball's Eastern League's All Star teams in 66/67 and 67/68. Hall of Fame in Washington State, Washington State University's Hall of Fame, Hall of Honors, in the PAC-10 Basketball Conference, Baseball's HOF in the Minor League Section as the only Minor League Player to win the Minor League Player of the Year twice - once in the class A Eastern League in Hartford, CT, 1951 and then in the American Association's class AAA, in Toledo, OH in 1953. President "Red" Auerbach of the Boston Celtics stated on the book's jacket: "Gene Conley was one of the greatest athletes of our generation". The book tells the reader interesting stories of his childhood, his being kidnapped by the Idaho State University coach and players the day before registering at Washington State University, his offer to play the "lead" in a Broadway play, being offered $20,000.00 not to play in the NBA, his run-ins with the Mafia, his leadership in gaining a NBA pension for those NBA players who played before 1965 and finally the explanation of that mystical and legendary tale of his interrupted 1962 season while with the Boston Red Sox, along with Pumpsie Green and his aborted trip to Israel.
Many have tried to become world champion two-sport professional athletes, the most well known may be Bo Jackson, Deion Sanders, Danny Ange or even Michael Jordan. There is only one who actually achieved this goal and his name is Gene Conley. One Of A Kind chronicles Gene=s amazing career where he was able to win world championships in Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association. One reason that you might not recognize the name of Gene Conley is that he won the World Series with the 1957 Milwaukee Braves and three NBA Championships with the Boston Celtics in 58/59, 59/60 and 60/61. If Gene had achieve this today he would have multi-million dollar contracts with both teams, multi-million dollar commercial endorsement contracts and perhaps be the biggest name in sports. Gene played in an era with some of the all-time greats in both sports. Read this book a learn what some of them had to say about him and this book.
