    [synopsis] => When Ball Four was published in 1970, it created a firestorm. Bouton was called a Judas, a Benedict Arnold, and a "social leper" for having violated the "sanctity of the clubhouse." Baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn tried to force Bouton to sign a statement saying the book wasn't true. Ballplayers, most of whom hadn't read it, denounced the book. It was even banned by a few libraries. 
Almost everyone else, however, loved Ball Four. Fans liked discovering that athletes were real people-often wildly funny people. 
Today Ball Four has taken on another role-as a time capsule of life in the sixties. 
This ebook version of Ball Four includes the first edition, the 1980, 1990, and 2000 updates, and 138 photos.
