Rich "Goose" Gossage's 22-year baseball career included a world championship with the 1978 Yankees
and nine All-Star selections. Along the way, he also had a couple of beers and a lot of fun. One of
the original glowering relief pitchers, he sported a wild mane of hair, a thick stubble, a
Fu Manchu mustache, and an attitude that said to all who faced him, "You're overmatched." In
the course of his career, Gossage matched fastballs with Nolan Ryannd checked out the good-looking ladies
in the third row with Thurman Munson. Gossage loved playing baseball, and that passion is
evident on every page. This richly textured, very funny memoir is filled with all the characters
that today's button-down baseball lacks. Gossage makes us all realize why we wanted to play big-league baseball
when we were kids: you never have to grow up. Wes Lukowsky
