Baseball team in history. During a season in which every other team in the American League had at least one future Hall of Famer on its roster, the Rangers' major claim to fame was an infielder who bragged that he was born with two spleens and once appeared as a teenager on "I've Got a Secret." Seasons in Hell is a riotous, candid, irreverent behind-the-scenes account in the tradition of The Bronx Zoo and Ball Four, following the Texas Rangers from Whitey's reign in 1973.
Through Billy Martin's tumultuous tenure the following year. Offering wonderful perspectives on dozens of unique baseball personalities, including Billy Martin and Whitey Herzog, and coming at a time when many are producing idealized visions of baseball "as it was meant to be," Seasons in Hell takes us into the dugout to show how it really is, in a no-holds-barred look at a real-life, hell-raising major-league baseball team. To get any closer, as Seasons in Hell.
