Super Sky Point to Jim Bouton, who wrote a book that I read when I was fourteen that changed my life. When you get to heaven, smoke ‘em inside, Bulldog. #BallFour #RIP @Super70sSports's photo on #BallFour

The first 2 Major Leaguers I ever met were Dick Radatz and Jim Bouton in 1964. It was awesome to hear them talk about hitters. Later Jim Bouton came on @PlanetMikey and did an hour of great radio with Bill Lee. #BallFour #TheWrongStuff RIP Mr. Bouton and thank you. @MikeyAdams420's photo on #BallFour

#RIPJimBouton. #BallFour was one of the first books I ever read. #JimBouton made me love baseball AND writing even more -- because it showed me that both pastimes were enjoyed by real people. I am forever thankful he had the balls to write the truth. @Wildaboutmusic's photo on #BallFour

RIP Jim Bouton . I wouldn't be a writer if it wasn't for Ball Four. He signed this copy of Ball Four for me after pitching a semi pro team to victory in July 96, Saugerties, NY. #ballfour https://t.co/udnpcuX17d

I was lucky enough to interview Jim Bouton a couple of times. He was funny, insightful & forever young. He's now smiling once again and reunited with his daughter Laurie. RIP Jim. https://t.co/xLjSOCOUIJ #JimBouton #BallFour #Yankees @MLB

Wow, #RIPJimBouton I found #BallFour when I was 13 at the house of someone I was babysitting for (a minister no less!) and never looked back. Probably read it three times before I was 20.

#BallFour and #Bouton are so important well BEYOND baseball or sports....that someone was willing to speak truth about how an institution works, and how it's stars are flawed, in a way that would cost him so much is utterly heroic. It stands the test of time more than most.

I was sad to learn that Jim Bouton passed away. His book #BallFour is poignant and deservedly legendary. But his life was far more interesting than just that chapter. This wonderfully written obituary by Bruce Weber seems a fitting tribute. #SeattlePilots https://t.co/lXbWcRc08D

Pitcher Jim Bouton's "Ball Four," published when I was in junior high, was a necessary antidote to childhood illusions. Terrific obit by @MattSchudel in @postobits @washingtonpost @bernsteinobits #JimBouton #BallFour https://t.co/Xdzx2NhNK3 via @BostonGlobe

#BallFour was one of the first books I ever read that was not assigned by a teacher. It's cliche but it changed the way I looked at sports, at writers, at athletes. This book & #PortnoysComplaint made me a reader.I wish love strength & vivid memories to his family. TY #JimBouton https://t.co/yGEMls6GkE

@Nojesrom That copy was stolen in the Cayman Islands about 8 years ago. The pages were literally falling out of the book because it had been read so many times by so many of my friends. #BallFour

One of the best pets of #BallFour was you can read it in a manner of what happened on this day during the 1969 season. To commemorate Jim Bouton’s death, July 10th’s entry. It was a good one. https://t.co/odpqSyR7oe

As we all like to tell our stories, Bouton's book #BallFour was a combination diary of his 1969 season and memoir of his years with the Yankees, Pilots, and Astros in a world where people are not supposed to tell what happens behind the scenes. https://t.co/nQRWP4Gdv1

As the tributes to Jim Bouton come in, we should also remember Jim Brosnan whose book The Long Season paved the way for Bouton. #BallFour

So very sad. #BallFour had a huge impact on me as a teen - I’ve re-read it more than any other book. Bouton taught me that pro athletes can have a world view, and be articulate and funny as hell. 1/2 https://t.co/Bz6skf36BB

Before #BallFour, sports memoirs were mostly generic, ghostwritten Triumphs of the Human Spirit rushed out immediately after a player's breakout season. After 1970? Publishers demanded dirt, color, life, the real story. #JimBouton improved an entire subgenre of books. R.I.P. https://t.co/edFU6zJRFp
