ball four turns forty (and i turn 28)
yesterday the wonderful baseball reliquary hosted a celebration of the jim bouton's incredible book, "ball four" at the central library in burbank. the event was packed - standing room only at the back of the room. the day included panel discussions with the author and some of his fellow teammates (including tommy davis and greg goossen, pictured above), as well as a few other notable sports personalities. we also got to screen a documentary on the team bouton played for when he wrote "ball four", the seattle pilots. as usual, the reliquary had a wide variety of artifacts on display for us to browse (photo of some of the items below). you can also visit my other blog to see what i got signed.
it was a fantastic way to spend a day with some friends - especially on the eve of my birthday. that's right, your favorite blogger turns 28 today! crazy stuff.
