You imagine your staff is undesirable? during this landmark paintings on probably the most tortured franchises in baseball, one reporter discovers that 9 innings can suppose like an eternity.
In early 1973, gonzo sportswriter Mike Shropshire agreed to hide the Texas Rangers for the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram, no longer knowing that the Rangers have been arguably the worst group in baseball historical past. Seasons in Hell is a riotous, candid, irreverent behind-the-scenes account within the culture of The Bronx Zoo and Ball 4, following the Texas Rangers from Whitey Herzog's reign in 1973 via Billy Martin's tumultuous tenure. supplying very good views on dozens of special (and most probably never-to-be-seen-again) baseball personalities, Seasons in Hell recounts the most severe characters ever to play the sport and brings to existence the no-holds-barred tradition of significant league baseball within the mid-seventies.
