Can you provide any details on the book. I didn't even know he had one out.

Kittle lives 2 miles from my house. I ought to get the book. He participates in many community events. He'll probably do a signing at the Valpo Barnes and Noble.

That would be a good read! Didn't hear anything about it. Maybe I should e-mail him and ask hm about it. He doesn't seem like the guy that would open a can of worms on someone but I bet there's some hilarious stories.

I never knew he had a book out either. I'll have to keep checking amazon.com to see when one pops up.

Sounds like a positive book, and not a, "tell all" for a change. I have my order in too. It should make for a nice thread.

I'm about half way through it already. It's a nice easy read. Basically Kittle is reminiscing about his career, most specifically the 1983 White Sox team. It is in a style that I would classify as "shorts" -- each little section contains a few paragraphs.

It's a nice journey back to the Winning Ugly year.

I heard about the book about a month ago on the radio but hadn't heard anything since. I listen to a lot of sports talk radio in Chicago & it seems like the book should get more attention.

Then I guess he's not in it for the money. :D:

The cover looks pretty cool.

I thought the same thing. I'd buy it just for the cover...After I'm done reading it it wll look cool o m 83 shelf in the office...Think I'll wait fo it to go down a few bucks though...It not me, its the wife...add it to the Fisk Nike shirt, a new pair of shoes, the new Stand By Me double disk and about 4 guitars that need retsrung...Can't have everything...

Ron Kittle's book is a great read and i heard that if you send in a copy of the book to Ron with 25$ he will personalize it and send it back. sweet right!

but that is not all i heard he is also coming out with baseball bat benches with 1930's bases as the seat and it is big enough to fit 2 people on it. the cheapest is 2,000$ but with all the labor and all the suppys it should really be worth more. also you can get it so you canhave your favorite players as the bats on the back part where it is were you can see the names
