Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Out of My League is a classic of sport, the first of George Plimpton's remarkable forays into "participatory" journalism.On an ordinary afternoon in the third-base-line seats at Yankee Stadium, Plimpton hits on what seems an inspired idea - to get on the mound and pitch a few innings to the All Stars of the American and National Leagues. What begins as a fun-filled stunt - for the "average man" to pitch in the Big Leagues - comes to a nearly humiliating end. This honest and hilarious tale features Mickey Mantle, Billy Martin, Willy Mays, Whitey Ford, Ralph Houk, and other baseball greats. (51/2 x 81/4, 160 pages)

Synopsis:

A tale of training, coaching, and finally pitching to some of baseball's greatest.
