Notes: Stottlemyre’s book was published after the revelation that he was suffering from cancer. Piersall was famous for his battles with mental illness perhaps more than his ability on the field; the biopic was truly bizarre. Watching Hopkins made me think someone forgot to take the hanger out of his jersey and his performance was just as wooden. Burke was the only baseball player to come out as gay; he died of AIDS in 1995. Gooden was a phenom at 19 and the darling of the media. His hard fall and redemption were similarly book-worthy.
