Dan Epstein Q&A w Joe Pepitone

DE: I know you weren’t a fan of your former teammate Jim Bouton’s book, Ball Four, but in many ways the publication of Ball Four made your book possible.

JP: Eh, I didn’t read his whole book – I just read certain things that were said about some guys on the club, where he’s the last one to talk, you know what I mean? And I didn’t like how he ####-talked about Mickey [Mantle], and stuff like that. I mean, we had a saying in baseball that, “What you see here and what you say here, let it stay here.” I don’t think in my book I got on anybody’s ass, or talked about anybody bad. I’m harsher on myself than anybody else.

DE: However, the story of you getting high with Mickey Mantle is one of the funniest things in your book.

JP: Oh, yeah! He didn’t like that too much.
