The Bulldog AKA Jim Bouton passed away yesterday at age 80. Bouton was a pitcher for the NY Yankees in the early '60s. Won a couple of World Series games and was know as a hard thrower who's cap would fall off because of his physical delivery. I can remember hearing the unofficial stats of how many times his hat would fall off during a game. Of course throwing that hard would also produce arm trouble which he struggled with most of his career. Bouton was probably best known for his kiss and tell book "Ball Four." That book got him banned from the Yankee's Old Timers game up until 1998. I just loved the guy as a kid. Miss him already. RIP Bulldog.
