About this title


In Catfish, Yaz, and Hammerin' Hank, sportswriter Phil Pepe talks to the stars of the day about their fondest memories and their greatest highlights from an era gone by. The spirit of the day is nostalgically captured in Pepe's priceless interviews and through scores of archival photographs. This book proves to be as enjoyable as the era it so thoroughly depicts.

From the Publisher:

"‘How would it work if you didn’t have the reserve clause? A team with the most money would be buying up all the stars, and nobody would be able to beat them. It would be terrible if some team did that.’ And I said to [Jim] Bouton, ‘You mean like the Yankees now?’" —Marvin Miller

"I made the 1971 All-Star team as an alternate. I was to replace Tony Oliva, who got hurt. I remember my [Oakland A’s] teammate, Sal Bando, telling me, ‘Don’t embarrass us and strike out...’" —Reggie Jackson

"I used to pound Clemente inside, pound him inside, pound him inside, and he liked the ball out over the plate and he’d hit the ball to right center. I threw a slider down and away and it was a damn good pitch, and he hit a line drive right down the right field line..." —Tom Seaver

"We were in a car going to get some ice cream, not far from our house in New Jersey, and the guy said over the radio, ‘Thurman Munson just died...crash...’ Audry and I just looked at each other and didn’t say a word for I don’t know how long." —Chris Chambliss
