He was quite the entrepeneur too. Big League Cards was his doing as well as being involving in the launching of Big League Chew. I have 5-6 different signed Big League cards he made of himself that he obviously used for autographing and netowrking.

So sad. Ball Four was the 1st baseball book I ever read, and still my favorite. I liked it so much I took it with me to the Boy Scout World Jamboree in Norway, in the 70's. I just had to finish reading it. Thank you Jim, R.I.P.

I read Ball Four every spring as part of my ritual of getting ready for baseball season.

If you haven't watched The Battered B*stards of Baseball it's definitely worth a watch too.
