Ball Four

By Bouton, Jim




Ball Four is a book written by former Major League Baseball pitcher Jim Bouton in 1970. The book talks about Bouton's career with the New York Yankees, the Houston Astros, and primarily his season with the Seattle Pilots (the club's only year in existence). Despite its controversy at the time, with baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn's attempts to discredit it and charging it detrimental to the sport, it is considered to be one of the most important sports books ever written.

Easton Press, 2001. Collector's Edition. Full Leather. Fine/No Jacket as Issued. A handsome dark blue leather Collector's Edition signed by the author. After a career in baseball as a pitcher, Bouton wrote "Ball Four" in 1970, a book in which he wrote frankly about the drugs alcohol, groupies, and the dark side of baseball.

The book is in fine unread condition with only a light mark on the top edge not affecting the gilt; otherwise very fine.
