For my money, the two best baseball books...The Boys of Summer and Ball Four. RIP Jim Bouton.

"Ball Four" author Jim Bouton died this week. His book opened my eyes when it comes to athletes as heroes. I still read it today with his autographed card as a bookmark. Hope you find the fastball again wherever you are, sir, and when you do, "pound that Budweiser!" https://t.co/4U82dcqDgt

Second, even if a book like Ball Four did get written today, I suspect it would be a lot more boring. Big salaries and the pressure-cooker of analytics has made the stakes too high for players to be doing what they used to in their free time.

@IlliniToffee
The first is that one of the commonalities of the Bouton obituaries was that Ball Four changed sports writing to something more tell-all, scandalous, etc. Maybe. But that underplays how scandalous something like Ball Four would be *today*.

@slightclutter I agree. One of the rather difficult passages early on in Ball Four is his reference to his daughter in light of what happened years later.
