About the Author

William Francis “Bill” Denehy is a former major league baseball player for the New York Mets. Once considered a top prospect, sharing his rookie card with Tom Seaver, “Baseball Bill” badly injured his arm the first month of his career. Bill unsuccessfully tried to stay in baseball with the aid of multiple cortisone shots. He later coached the University of Hartford, was a minor league pitching coach for the Boston Red Sox, and a radio announcer. He is now in long-term recovery and belongs to the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.

Peter Golenbock is one of the nation’s best-known sports authors. He has written eight New York Times bestsellers, including The Bronx Zoo (with Sparky Lyle), Number 1 (with Billy Martin), Balls (with Greg Nettles), Personal Fouls, American Prince (with Tony Curtis), and Presumed Guilty (with Jose Baez). He lives with his wife and son in Saint Petersburg, Florida.

The first half of this book is filled with anecdotes from MLB in the 1970's and Bill Denehy's perception of how he was mistreated by the teams he played for. The second half of the book deals with Denehy's recovery from alcohol and drug abuse. There may be life lessons to be learned from each part.

I'm sober in AA. 42 yrs and a huge baseball fan. Most of the players mentioned in the book were familiar names. So I enjoyed the book, but for I wouldn't recommend it to a person who was not a fan or in recovery.

Bill Denehy reveals the devastating truth about drugs in baseball, especially in the 60's and 70's. This book provides an insider look at many of the personalities of the baseball players and managers, including Tug McGraw, Billy Martin, Tom Seaver, Pete Rose. The reader will be exposed to much of the destructiveness of players' behavior and addiction. Bill weaves a story of his own personal experiences in baseball and addiction. Fortunately for Bill and many others, his addiction is turned into recovery but unfortunately, he becomes blind due to the prescribed drugs given to him to help him play. This is a great read for sports fans and people interested in recovery.
