In this candid autobiography, Ron LeFlore, star centerfielder for the Detroit Tigers, tells how he was picked up for robbing the local A&P at the age of 12, landed in prison for armed robbery when he was 19, and served 38 months before being paroled in 1973. How and why he found himself in prison, the helplessness and terror he felt there, and his rebirth as a major-league baseball player are the ingredients of his remarkable story.
