THE UMPIRE STRIKES BACK by Ron Luciano and David Fisher

Umpire Strikes Back - Ron Luciano

Ron Luciano tells of his experiences as an umpire in the minors and the American League then as a color analyst with the Game of the Week.


I have had this on my shelves for 39 years. I kept saying I was going to get to it. I have now finally gotten to it. And am I glad I did! It was so funny as he talks of being a talker on the field. I liked how he broke the chapters into playing positions. I loved the photos in the middle of the book. With baseball season coming up, and hearing about these players at the time and watching them on games and the news, I enjoyed myself. I liked how he talked of the changes in the game; and I even remember talk of orange baseballs. This is a trip down memory lane through the eyes of an umpire. It is still worth reading!
