The Eastside Kid

Front Cover
Trafford, Oct 5, 2009 - Biography & Autobiography - 144 pages

I first stopped playing baseball at the age of twelve, but left on a high note. I was forced to quit due to a wrist tumor formed by throwing curve balls at a young age. But my passion and love for the game continued to form an inner spirit that clawed at my heart for thirty five years, and later in life, I found baseball once again and attacked it with a vengeance. I am full-throttle, green-light; take no prisoners now, as I share my story from 1957 to 2007. My story begins on the eastside of Brockton, Massachusetts, and leads to my present baseball experiences. Being an eastside kid has had a very special meaning for me and other real eastside kids. It's not that we were tough - I guess it was the true grit, the attitude, and the loyalty to the friends at the sandlots, your teammates, neighborhoods, and the idea of belonging to each other, which I easily adapted to as similar experience in the military. There are battles; comebacks, disabilities, and an inside look at how baseball beats in my heart.
