Foul Ball: My Life and Hard Times Trying to Save an Old Ballpark
From legendary Ball Four author, Jim Bouton, comes the behind-the-scenes story of Bouton's valiant and determined efforts to save Wahconah Park.
For the first time in two decades, enjoy Foul Ball as never before with freshly edited content and a new foreword from Jim Bouton's wife, Paula.
With his trademark wit and distinctive voice, Bouton recounts his battle against the local elites' efforts to replace one of the oldest parks in the United States against the wishes and votes of local citizens.
But Foul Ball is more than just a lively romp about saving an old ballpark near Bouton's home in Massachusetts.
In a detailed diary–his first since Ball Four–Bouton takes us along on his wild ride, into the teeth of corporate malfeasance, anti-democratic processes, the tyranny of a one-newspaper town, and the real reason why the good old boys wanted to build a new stadium.
