Baseball to Brain Injury and Back: A Story of Survival

A few weeks back I reviewed a book by retired baseball star Ruppert Jones whose promising career was cut short by a traumatic brain injury he suffered while playing centerfield for the New York Yankees in August 1980.

Jones was interviewed by Tom Kranz on his excellent podcast Type. Tune. Tint.

I’ve attached the link here.

I’m sure you will enjoy the interview. If you get a chance check out the interview Tom did with me about my book Mickey Mantle’s Last Home Run.
