Abstract:

Dave Pallone, a National League umpire for ten years, attracted major public attention when Pete Rose shoved him in a 1988 Mets-Reds game, igniting one of the most controversial incidents in baseball history. This book is a revealing look at baseball through the eyes of an umpire with two unique perspectives on the national pastime: one, the man in blue, cursed by fans and players alike; and two, the stranger in a strange land -- the gay sensibility in forbidden straight territory.
