My Bat Boy Days (2008)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Mar 25, 2008; Writer: Steve Garvey; Genres: Nonfiction, Sports; Publisher: Scribner

The Dodgers great, Steve Garvey, recalls his years (1956-61) as the team's spring-training batboy in My Bat Boy Days.

Dugout Banter
Roy Campanella: ''Stevie, if you practice and study hard, someday you will be a Dodger.'' What, no juicing?

Final Score
Jackie, Pee Wee, et al. seem bland in a book that reads like Boys' Life circa 1958. C
