Behind the Mask: My Double Life in Baseball by Dave Pallone (1990)



Hardcover in Very Good (VG) condition. Slight discoloration on outside edge of pages.

First Edition. 

BEHIND THE MASK My Double Life in Baseball. Eighteen years of controversy, hard work, triumphs and disappointments - Dave Pallone had a remarkable career as a National League Umpire. But all the while, he suffered a double life; hidden behind the façade he had built to protect himself, Dave Pallone was gay. And the revelation of his secret did what nearly two decades of facing down irate managers, abusive players and ostracism as a strike-breaking "scab" couldn't do - it destroyed his career in a few short months. Told with honesty, humor, and insight, this is his moving story - where the real man behind the stories and controversies is finally revealed.
