    A GRAND SLAM!!

    I just bought Clearing the Bases on 3/18/2005, today I finished it 3/19/2005. This book is a must read for any real fan of americas past time, I don't do reviews mainly because I am horrible with puntuation and spelling...That aside this is a book that not only brought back memories of a game I used to love, but helped me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Mike takes you into baseball in a way I never have been even though I played all through my childhood and through high school. This is not a book about smack talk or who is better then who this is a book about baseball and what needs to be done to get it back to just that. The title says it all. Juiced was a fun read but that was it fun. Clearing the Bases is not only fun, it is honost, insightful, and most of all it is about person who gave so much to the game and even when the game seemed not to want it. Mike is trully a hall of famer on and off the field. Clearing the Bases is the best book to come out on baseball in along time. As a Yankee fan I am used to seeing players come and go, that has really made me start to dislike baseball along with all the other junk in the game. Thanks Mike for letting us fans get a look at how a fomer 'lifer' sees the state of baseball. P.S. Sorry for all spelling and grammer errors.

    Excellent!

    I grew up watching Mike Schmidt and others of the era play ball. His insights are spot on! Lots of facts but more importantly, the book is like having a conversation with the author.
