    I read a few years ago there maybe a movie in the works. Out of uniform he was really Super Fly !:cool:
    And speaking of The Swinging 70s, I was talking to my neighbor yesterday. He grew up with Charlie Finley and his kids. Gary Indiana.

    Here are two books that I read and thoroughly enjoyed:

    These books are really excellent sketches of the era's sociology, history, and culture through the lens of baseball. And you will gain a great sympathy for Billy Martin. Working for Steinbrenner was like living in a combat zone. Billy lived on scotch and cigarettes in the late 70s.
