A round up of the most outrageous group of malcontents, characters, rebels, nut jobs, reprobates, wing-nuts, wackos, space cadets, head cases, goofs, free thinkers, and oddballs who ever livened up the grand old game of baseball, this collection not only describes their most bizarre antics in often-hilarious detail, but also includes the unique thoughts of Bill “Spaceman” Lee, a man known for his colorful quotes and offbeat personality.
Bill "Spaceman" Lee is a former pitcher who spent 14 years in the major leagues with the Boston Red Sox and the Montreal Expos. He was elected into the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2008. Jim Prime has written several books on the Boston Red Sox, including collaboration with the late Ted Williams and another book coauthored with Bill Lee, The Little Red (Sox) Book. He lives in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.
"This is a laugh-out-loud collection . . . Lee never had much of a fastball as a pitcher, but he writes a 95-mile-per-hour book." —Booklist magazine
