Overview

Ball Four: The Final Pitch by Jim Bouton

The beloved baseball classic now available in paperback, with an updated epilogue by Jim Bouton

When  Ball Four was first published in 1970, it hit the sports world like a lightning bolt. Commissioners, executives, and players were shocked. Sportswriters called author Jim Bouton a traitor and "social leper." Commissioner Bowie Kuhn tried to force him to declare the book untrue. Fans, however, loved the book. And serious critics called it an important social document. Today, Jim Bouton is still not invited to Oldtimer's Days at Yankee Stadium. But his landmark book is still being read by people who don't ordinarily follow baseball.

For the updated edition of this historic book, Bouton has written a new epilogue, detailing his perspective on how baseball has changed since the last edition was released.

A real disappointment. I read the original. He edited out many things to become more PC. Which was the allure- it was not PC crap of today. A sell out.
