American athlete, a top ranking major league baseball pitcher. He was physically a late starter, as he had an unhappy childhood and severe acne as a kid; Bouton always painfully felt that he was an outsider. He signed with the New York Yankees on 11/20/1958 and played in his first World Series in 1963, winning 21 major league games.
An irreverent nonconformist, he was an author, an actor, and a TV sportscaster the year after he retired, in 1969. His autobiography was published in 1970, entitled "Ball Four." A few years later he wrote a sequel, "I'm Glad You Didn't Take It Personally." In 1994, he co-wrote "Strike Zone" with veteran writer Eliot Asinof. His hobbies are art, painting, designing and making jewelry, not what one usually finds with ball players.
Married in 1962, he had two sons and one adopted daughter; the marriage didn't last, and Bouton was divorced in 1981. He had a vasectomy.
