For nearly five decades, Lou Piniella has been a fixture in Major League Baseball, as an outfielder with the legendary New York Yankees of the 1970's, and as a manager for five teams in both the American and National leagues. In this candid, revealing, and entertaining memoir, the beloved New York Yankee legend looks back over his nearly 50-year career as a player and a manager, sharing insights and stories about some of his most memorable moments and some of the biggest names in Major League Baseball.

FOX's Gurnal Scott spends "A Few Moments With..." Piniella to discuss his time as a Yankee, his relationship with former pinstripe catcher, the late Thurman Munson, how he enjoys a baseball game these days, gives his list of the greatest players he's ever managed, including Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr., what he thinks about the current league and even admits that he wishes that more Americans were playing baseball.
