A Wrestling Hall of Famer writes of a Baseball Hall of Famer

ScooterScooter by Mick Foley; 2005; Alfred A. Knopf, New York; 302 pages; Fiction Foley; 11/1-11/5/05
Mick Foley is good. He has written a tale of redemption and baseball. Rocky Balboa found redemption through boxing. Scooter Riley is part of a severly dysfunctional family. Foley writes a great story with baseball as a background. This is about baseball the same way Signs is about an alien invasion. Signs is about faith in my opinon, this book is about redemption and family. By the way some of you may have heard of Mick Foley, this is his second career, he used to be at the top of the World Wrestling Federation heap, he was champion as Mankind, Dude Love and Cactus Jack. I really enjoy his writing. RRR
