BOOK: Planet of the Umps by Ken Kaiser
This is probably one of the first baseball books I ever read. It has been some time, but I enjoyed it. It is a jam packed book with lots of great baseball stories.
Ken talks about his rise through the ranks of the various baseball levels, strikes, friends, etc. I really enjoy his story of his other career as a pro-wrestler. He enjoys this career while also being an ump, until one of his colleagues sees him wrestle one night!
Again, it has been some time since I read this one, but I remember it had a lot of great stories, and I just wanted to keep reading it.
