it was amazing

The Wrong Stuff was one of the more entertaining baseball books I've ever read. It is the true story of ex-Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee's time in the majors and life just after it. Lee is eccentric, to say the least, and not shy about relating the realities of life on the road: the boozing, drugs, and women. He doesn't write about these shenanigans with puffed up bravado. He is more interested in conveying the circus atmosphere of professional sports, and does so with bemusement and humor. Also, having all sorts of strange influences - some Eastern, he will spend a couple paragraphs describing a method of pitching without thinking, or pitching with a hangover. It all makes for a very entertaining read.
