Spaceman : a baseball odyssey( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the 1970's, Bill Lee was the ultimate gonzo baseball player, a brilliant left-handed pitcher who flouted every manager or front office executive who tried to control him. The fans loved him and so did the sportwriters who delighted in asking the usual baseball questions, only to get philosophical responses. Out of professional baseball since 1983, Lee roamed the world in search of a chance to play the game he loves. Lee's adventures have taken him across the United States to China, Russia, South American, every province of Canada and the impoverished baseball mecca of Cuba. Along the way we hear from former teammates, family members, fans and Lee himself, about the unique life and career that spawned the legend of a ballplayer who will forever be known as the Spaceman

Son of Havana a baseball journey from Cuba to the big leagues and back by Luis Tiant( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Luis Tiant is one of the most charismatic and accomplished players in Boston Red Sox history-a cigar-chomping maestro who was the heart and soul of Boston's teams in the 1970s. In his white polyester uniform, with a paunch in his belly and a Fu Manchu mustache on his face, Tiant looked like a guy rolling out of bed for a Sunday-morning beer league. But nobody was a tougher competitor on the diamond, and few were as successful. There may be no more qualified pitcher not yet enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame. His big-league dreams came at a steep price-racism in the Deep South and the Boston suburbs, fifteen years separated from a family held captive in Castro's Cuba. But baseball also delivered World Series stardom and a heroic return to his island home after a half-century of forced exile. The man whose name-"El Tiante"-became a Fenway Park battle cry has never fully shared his tale in his own words, until now. In Son of Havana, Tiant puts his huge heart on his sleeve and describes his road from fields strewn with rocks and rubbish in Havana to the pristine lawns of Major League ballparks. Ballplayers, family, and media also weigh-in-including a foreword by fellow 1975 hero Carl Yastrzemski and the first in-depth interview ever with Hall of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk on the magic behind the Boston batterymates
