Finally back in print after many years, here is Bill Lee{u2019}s classic tale of his renegade life on and off the mound. Whether walking out on the Montreal Expos to protest the release of a valued teammate or telling sportswriters eager for candid and offbeat comments more about the game than his bosses wanted anyone to know, pitcher Bill Spaceman Lee became celebrated as much for his rebellious personality as for his remarkable talent. Add to the mix his affinity for Eastern religions and controversial causes, and you can see why Lee infuriated the establishment while entertaining his legion of fans. In this wildly funny memoir that became a massive bestseller in the United States and Canada when it was first published, Lee recounts the colorful story of his life{u2014}from the drugged-out antics of his college days at USC (where he learned that marijuana never hammered me like a good Camel ) to his post ? it{u2019}s much easier to climb into a Rolls-Royce ).

Bill Lee's autobiography ( )
  JackSweeney | Jan 9, 2017 |
In the wake of the Red Sox loss to the White Sox, I decided to revisit the past and read Bill Lee‘s autobiography, written with Dick Lally. Lee pitched for the Red Sox during the years that I became a baseball fan. This twenty-year old book is a breezy, amusing recollection of baseball in the seventies. Lee and Lally just wrote another book that will also go on my list of books to read.

Published in hardback by Viking Press. ( )

Maybe the best of the second wave of tell all/locker room story baseball books to come out in the wake of Ball Four. Funny stuff. ( )
