Planet of the Umps: A Baseball Life from Behind the Plate by Ken Kaiser, David Fisher

Two things nobody wants to grow up to be are an umpire and broke. Thanks to my career in baseball I got to be both. For twenty-years as a major league umpire Ken Kaiser ignored the boos and swept the plate. And in his auto-bio-graphy-written with the co-author of Ron Lucianos classic bestseller The Umpire Strikes Back-he brings to life his adventures both on and off the field. This is a hysterical story of baseball from the inside, fair to foul, balls to brawls, strikes to....strikes. From coming up in the minors, I suspected I might have a problem when I turned on the lights and found my partners glass eye on the table, right through his years spent in the big leagues with stars like Reggie Jackson, Mark McGwire and Nolan Ryan, Kaiser comes across as a one-of-a-kind, larger-than-his-chest-protector, kind of blue.
