There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The entire book is filled with the author complaining about the league, playing conditions, compensation,etc....page 212, "the fields were bush, the umps were bush, the payment system, living situation, and schedule were bush. And quite frankly, some of the players were bush , too. " But the author did spend alot of time bragging about his success in this " bush " league. I think Sandy Koufax's name was mentioned once and Art Shamky's twice.
The rest of the book is filled with his misdirected leftist sympathies for the Palestinans, constantly blaming Israel's "settlements " as the main impediment to the peace process.
And to have to read lines like, " Being hurt was a shi--y feeling, worse than sucking on the field." ......now that's painful!!!
The book was cool because you really get the behind the scenes stories. Its just as much about the game as it is the disaster that was the IBL. While reading it I could picture everything he was saying.
Definitely worth a read
