Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

I am a ghost writer.

I died in Inverness, Florida. I was 83.

The cause was cardiac arrest. I had a number of heart, kidney, vision, and mobility ailments since suffering a stroke in 1991. I was taken by ambulance to the hospital from my home in Hernando, Florida because I was having difficulty breathing.

Any stories you read about my head are pure bunk—fake news!

In life, my relationship with the Boston community was damaged by a long-running feud between me and much of the Boston media. The newspapermen didn’t make my life any easier, but I didn’t help myself with my legendary stubbornness. The same mind that ensured I could remember a pitch that struck me out three months before was not going to forget any slights inflicted by a hostile press.

I was a driven, obsessed young man. I thought the weight of the damn world was always on my neck, grinding on me.

I wanted to be the greatest hitter who ever lived.

Nobody ever worked harder at hitting. Hitting a baseball was at the core of my existence. My whole life was hitting.

Hitting is a correction thing. Every swing you're changing. Every thought you're correcting. Every time up, you're thinking. If I was battling a slump, I stayed up all night thinking about what to change.

Before he died, Charley Lau ranked me as the greatest hitter in baseball history. You could look it up.

I have always thought of baseball as the best of all games: the most interesting, the most demanding, the most rewarding. I cannot begin to express the gratification I have felt in being part of the game of baseball with such a wonderful flavor and spirit. The game I love has produced such superb champions and attractive personalities as Merkle, Young, Stivetts, Arlington, Jackson, Wambsganss, Evers, Stengel, Piersall, Berra, Martin, Hobbs, McAvoy, and Al the Boss Angel.

Wherever I traveled at home or abroad, I found baseball to be a universal language. I enjoyed every moment spent in baseball—above all the many wonderful friends I have made. I loved playing baseball more than anything else in my life.

The prospect that there was going to be baseball in my day made me feel privileged and extremely happy. I could not wait for the sun to rise so I could get to the ballpark again.
