An interesting look at Major League Baseball's most notorious personalities, both off the field and on. Some of these characters will be of little or no surprise -- Jose Conseco, Pete Rose, Marge Schott, etc, but the others ... very, very interesting (ala Arte Johnson).

FYI -- The ones that went off and murdered their families were probably the most interesting / disturbing stories that I read!
