You have successfully perpetuated the stereotype that chronic steroid abusers never truly change, and that major league teams were wise to essentially blackball you from the game after your first book was released seven years ago. It's a sad story, but honestly, can you really for sorry for the guy? He's a loudmouth who thinks he's some sort of pariah. I don't really respect him fo...

Wezen-Ball: What the Batboy Saw by Larry Granillo

Growing up in a city roughly 250 miles from the nearest Major League Baseball team, I was always jealous of kids living in those cities who were able to go to a big league game practically any night of the week. If only I lived so close to a big league stadium, I'd think, I'd get to see Cal Ripken and Jose Canseco and Ryne Sandberg and everyone else constantly. It was a dream...
