    1. David Garza on said:

      Really three and a half stars, but I'll give it four for it's social relevance for its time."Behind the Mask: My Double Life in Baseball" is more than just a memoir about ex-umpire Dave Pallone's life in baseball. And some readers may be turned off by the discovery that Pallone goes into some detail about his own self-discovery in his personal life.

    2. Richard Rosario on said:

      Great read about equality in a baseball framework. It is compelling and touching.

    3. Dale Stonehouse on said:

      Too much gay lifestyle/coming out detail for me here, especially in the baseball world where macho is the only accepted category. I read it for the parts about umpire school and working in the minor and major leagues in the 1970s and 80s. My advice to the author would be to look in the mirror and stop blaming others.

    4. Gary Grimes on said:

      An OK read about a story that really didn't turn out good. He was fired because he was gay and yet this book also shows the power of the union, the power of sport, the incredible power of american baseball. THe real problem though is that the book is not well written.

    5. A.J. Chilson on said:

      This book is a fascinating story of a man who loves baseball, even when it doesn't love him in return. Read this book and you'll see why. A.J. Chilson @AJ_Chilson
