As a young adult, I read Ball Four and was forever a Jim Bouton fan...Watched him try to come back one last time with Atlanta...His book peeled back the curtain of major league locker rooms...He did it with a great sense of humor and found myself rooting for him...From being an athlete, to broadcaster, to Big League chew, he was a success every step of the way. He had an inate ability to make total strangers like me root for Jim Bouton...When his daughter passed my heart broke for him...when he returned to Yankee Stadium for the old timers game I misted...A great man, a great life...Thank you for bringing us along as spectators...you sir will be missed, and thank you..

Well done, Jim. I tip my hat to you. Better yet, I knock the whole thing off. You did it your way. I have coached youth and high school ball for many years now, and the player with the best attitude and love of the game is the team "Bulldog." And going forward, when I watch a game at Wahconah Park in Pittsfield, and they pause the game on a summer eve at sunset for a 15 minute "sun delay" because the sun glare is right in the batter's eyes, and both teams' players, coaches and umps all pause and chat together,I will enjoy the moment with you in mind, smile and say "Thanks, Jim."

One of my all time favorite writers, he was truly gifted.

Cried today. Lost the man who influenced me as a writer more than anyone. My dad suggested I read Ball Four.
Almost 50 years later your style still resonates with me. Ruth, Churchill, Jesus and Bouton. That's my starting staff.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
