To the moon

GleasonAs it says on the top of this MLBlog, some of these posts will allow me to share some of my favorite stories about stars I have known throughout my career. Jackie Gleason was a generous, multi-talented guy, a great actor and agood friend. He had one of the biggest personalities I’ve ever
known…and an ego to match! Here’s one of my favorite, true stories
about Jackie that says it all.

Listen to the Podcast

Thanks to all of you who have been commenting on this blog and asking questions, too. I am in the middle of a signing tour now in the state of Missouri for my new book Tony and Me, which you can order right here at the MLB.com Shop as a great holiday gift. I will address some of your comments as soon as I can, and in the meantime I hope you enjoy this story about Jackie…one of the great ones.

Gleason was awesome too… my dad loved his comedy.
what a great picture of him!

Thank you.
Dear Jack:
It was so good to see you at the Tonys, you look just great.
I wanted to write to you, but did not know how to get in touch with you.
Are you going to have a book signing in Las Vegas, Nv.
Where and when?
I met you at the Rivera Hotel many years ago. We spoke with one another at the Casino Cage. Do you remember?
