FEAR STRIKES OUT: THE JIM PIERSALL STORY

Jim Piersall, whom many will remember for his antics of the 1952 baseball season tells of what went on up to that time when the capers and clowning were symptoms of the crackup which followed. The events of his childhood- a sick mother, an ambitious father, financial hard times- made a worried boy out of Jim whose contract after high school with the Red Sox was won through the sheer necessity to play well. But with the crack up-a result of panic as well as the past, Jim's treatment prepared to face and overcome his fears. Incentive and inspiration for other readers here.
