Passed at age 80. Sad

The author of the groundbreaking hardball tell-all “Ball Four” died Wednesday following a battle with a brain disease linked to dementia, according to friends of the family. The Newark, N.J., native was in the Massachusetts home he shared with his wife Paula Kurman after weeks of hospice care. He was 80.


I hope that one day, someone will write a similar "tell-all" book about the WNBA, similar to what 'Ball Four' did for baseball.
