Synopsis: INSIGHTS FROM A BLIND SPORTSWRITER. At the height of his career, Jim Murray who had been named national sportswriter of the year 13 times, and was a Pulitzer Prize winner and a syndicated columnist at the Los Angeles Times suddenly went blind. Plunged into darkness, he had to find a way to write his column, which was printed five days a week and syndicated in more than 200 newspapers. He had to do this without being able to see the game he was covering, the person he was interviewing or most importantly the words he was writing. Urged on by his wife, Gerry, Murray found a way to write his column: through the eyes of an inexperienced yet enthusiastic copyboy. Enter John Scheibe, whose On the Road With Jim Murray: Baseball and the Summer of 79 tells the extraordinary story of his collaboration with an extraordinary man and one of the most remarkable twists of fate in sportswriting history.
