About This Item

The book that embarrassed baseball, Ball Four, My Life and Hard Times Throwing the Knuckleball in the Big Leagues by Jim Bouton.

First edition, signed by Bouton on the title page. Book and dust jacket are very good. There is fading to the boards of the book and previous owner's name stamped on bottom of title page. Minor tear on front of jacket and minor chipping.

Synopsis

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.
