Ball Four

Ball Four - Jim Bouton I once met a minor league pitcher who´d read this as part of a sports course at Harvard. The Harvard grad echoed Bouton´s contention that pitching coaches the world over aren´t much more than ball carriers who giveth the ball and taketh away, but like God, never deem it necessary to deliver direct suggestions.

Favourite quote from the book? "People ask me if it´s true about ball players and airline stewardesses. Yes it is."
