Ball Four (Jim Bouton)

[Ball Four]This is typically known as the book that changed the way we think about atheletes, i.e., they’re not infallible heros, but normal people that play a kid’s game for a living, and thus act like kids most of the time. To be honest, I thought the antics would be much crazier, and the criticism of the game’s legends (Mantle in particular) to be much harsher. I have to say this is a must read for a baseball fan, and a good read for anyone that mildly cares about sports.
