Over the Edge

Jay Johnstone, Author McGraw-Hill/Contemporary $16.95 (229p) ISBN 978-0-8092-4975-6
TV sports host Johnstone played baseball for 22 years, serving time with eight major league clubs; with sports journalist Talley he collaborated on Temporary Insanity. This sequel also has its quota of juvenile humor but it has some wit, too. There are entertaining anecdotes about baseball in Japan and at U.S. colleges and tales about old-timers' games. A chapter on ""All-Time Greatest Lists'' includes amusing quotes from ``stupid'' sports reporters, players, announcers and, best of all, long-suffering Chicago Cubs fans. It's fun.
