Description for THE UMPIRE STRIKES BACK by Ron Luciano & David Fisher:

Here is Ron Luciano, the funniest ump ever to call balls and strikes, a huge and awesome legend who leaps and spins and shoots players with an index finger while screaming OUTOUTOUT!!! Now, baseball's flamboyant fan-on-the-field comes out from behind the mask to call the game as he really sees it.

There's the day the automatic umpire debuted at home plate---and struck out...The time Rod Carew stole home twice in one inning., and Earl Weaver stole second base---and took it back to the dugout...The pitch Tommy John dropped on the mound, which Luciano called a strike...And there's the fantastic phantom double play, the impossible frozen ice-ball theory, and another first, Luciano picking Harmon Killebrew off second base.

From brawls to catcalls, from dugout jokes to on-the-field pratfalls to one-of-a-kind conversations with baseball's greats. Ron Luciano, the only umpire who confessed to missing calls, takes a few grand slam swings of his own. It is baseball at its bets. THE UMPIRE STRIKES BACK.
