Was the first sports "tell all" book, made Bouton a pariah in baseball circles for long time.

But yes, interesting reading.

It sure did. I don't think I ever pulled so hard for a guy as I did his games in that call up September of 1978. That game he lost 2-1 against the Big Red Machine was like a playoff game for us Broncos listening.
