Publisher's Summary

Reggie Jackson and Bob Gibson offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to understand America's pastime from their unique insider perspective.

Legendary. Insightful. Uncompromising. Candid. Uncensored. Mr. October and Hoot Gibson unfortunately never faced each other on the field. But now, in Sixty Feet, Six Inches, these two legends open up in fascinating detail about the game they love and how it was, is, and should be played. Their one-of-a-kind insider stories recall a who's who of baseball nobility, including Willie Mays, Alex Rodriguez, Hank Aaron, Albert Pujols, Billy Martin, and Joe Torre. This is an unforgettable baseball history by two of its most influential superstars.

Badball

This is the first time I've ever just stopped listening to a book and deleted it. I'm a die hard baseball fan but this is just a mish mash of self serving drivel from clearly 2 of the most talented, but self absorbed athletes of out time...don't waste your credits on this one !!

Great book for any baseball fan

This book has great back and forth with two of the best players at their positions. Also some very sad parts that both of these players had to go through on their rise to the top. The racism both had to deal with, I grew up 5 miles from where Reggie did and to hear what he had to go through with the same little league I went threw.
