Behind the Mask: My Double Life in Baseball

Dave Pallone, Author, Alan Steinberg, With Signet Book $5.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-451-17029-3
Pallone became a National League umpire during the 1979 arbiters' strike; during his 10 years in the majors, he encountered animosity for his original ``scab'' status and rumors of the homosexuality he tried to conceal. When his name was linked to a scandal involving teenage boys, he was asked to resign at the end of the 1988 season. According to PW, ``Pallone seemingly holds nothing back, giving readers the most candid and riveting sports autobiography since Navratilova's Martina. '' Photos. Author tour. (Apr.)
