This account of his experience is a frank and fascinating one."-Chicago Sunday Tribune "The story of a man who became mentally ''sick, '' and how, through competent medical care, the help of a sympathetic and most understanding wife, the patience and encouragement of manager, teammates and fans, and above all his own splendid courage, he made a complete recovery and resumed his baseball career. . . .. How we overcame his fears is a dramatic, heart-warming story."-Library Journal Jim Piersall played baseball in the 1950s and 1960s for the Boston Red Sox, the Cleveland Indians, the Washington Senators, the New York Mets, and the California Angels.

He lives in Arizona during the off-season and in Chicago during the season.
