    "Badball"

    This is the first time I've ever just stopped listening to a book and deleted it. I'm a die hard baseball fan but this is just a mish mash of self serving drivel from clearly 2 of the most talented, but self absorbed athletes of out time...don't waste your credits on this one !!

    "Great book for any baseball fan"

    This book has great back and forth with two of the best players at their positions. Also some very sad parts that both of these players had to go through on their rise to the top. The racism both had to deal with, I grew up 5 miles from where Reggie did and to hear what he had to go through with the same little league I went threw.
