  1. I m one chapter in and I already want to take Vrusho s thesaurus away and hit him with it But I forge on I managed 47 pages before I skipped to the index to read up on anyone whose name I recognized, and I was aggravated to discover a cheap shot at Jason Varitek one of the nicest and hardest working guys in baseball, thank you very much , which mostly boiled down to they call him Tek , what a dumb nickname because no baseball player has ever been given a dumb nickname before Honestly.I was force [...]


  2. Growing up, my dad had season tickets to the Knicks This was when they were champions and had players akin to cartoon characters, with names like Clyde and Earl the Pearl They owned Madison Square Garden I was at a classic early 1970s game, where the Knicks came back from 30 odd point loss in the fourth quarter to win It was one of the few times I looked up from the program, where I filled the margins with my doodles Milk Duds and boredom are my sports memories But my friend Spike Vrusho doesn [...]


  3. Baseball brawls or, as some refer to them, basebrawls are seldom very violent, often look foolish, but also engender lots of debate and discussion This volume focuses on, as the subtitle refers to it, Baseball s Greatest Fights and Riots The heart of the book is the description of some famous brawls and brawlers over time Think things get spicy now Pages 6 8 outline Ty Cobb s greatest hits or brawls Cobb was a nasty customer, and these vignettes give a sense of his persona And then there was the [...]


  4. Some of this was pretty funny A large collection of nororious brawls, fistfights, players vs fan confrontationsat sort of thing Lots of famous fights Ryan vs Ventura, Rose vs Harrelson, Rosebro vs Marachel and famous brawlers like Mad Dog Bill Madlock, Ty Cobb, Billy Marting The 70s sure seemed like the heyday for some crazy baseball fights based on the amount included in this book Not many fights these days as baseball has legislated against pitching inside for the most part to me, that s a sha [...]


  5. I liked how when they mentioned a player they cited the other fights that he had been in I enjoyed the whole take on the Orioles Yankees fight with Benitez That was one of my favorite ones that I ever saw live on TV, and when reading that part I felt like I was watching it again in my mind A chapter devoted to just Billy Martin was well deserved A good baseball book.


  6. One of the best baseball histories ever Thoroughly researched and comprehensive Absolutly hysterical and a great Summer read.


  7. I think Chelsea should actually read this whole book and not be hung up on Varitekwhat, not one name was recognized for 47 pages Were you born yesterday
