They Called Me God

release date: Mar 25, 2014
They Called Me God
The incredible memoir from the man voted one of the “Best Umpires of All Time” by the Society of American Baseball Research—filled with more than three decades of fascinating baseball stories. Doug Harvey was a California farm boy, a high school athlete who nevertheless knew that what he really wanted was to become an unsung hero—a major league umpire. Working his way through the minor leagues, earning three hundred dollars a month, he survived just about everything, even riots in stadiums in Puerto Rico. And while players and other umps hit the bars at night, Harvey memorized the rule book. In 1962, he broke into the big leagues and was soon listening to rookie Pete Rose worrying that he would be cut by the Reds and laying down the law with managers such as Tommy Lasorda and Joe Torre. This colorful memoir takes you behind the plate for some of baseball’s most memorable moments, including Roberto Clemente’s three thousandth and final hit; the heroic three-and-two pinch-hit home run by Kirk Gibson in the ’88 World Series; and the nail-biting excitement of the ’68 World Series. But beyond the drama, Harvey turned umpiring into an art. He was a man so respected, whose calls were so feared and infallible, that the players called him “God.” And through it all, he lived by three rules: never take anything from a player, never back down from a call, and never carry a grudge. A book for anyone who loves baseball, They Called Me God is a funny and fascinating tale of on- and off-the-field action, peopled by unforgettable characters from Bob Gibson to Nolan Ryan, and a treatise on good umpiring techniques. In a memoir that transcends the sport, Doug Harvey tells a gripping story of responsibility, fairness, and honesty.

F. Scott Hess

release date: Jan 01, 2014
F. Scott Hess
Throughout his 40 year career F Scott Hess has painted against the grain of the contemporary art world. In this comprehensive monograph, we witness Hess steadfastly going his own way. In the 80s, a period in which conceptual art was favored, he emphasized figurative work with narrative themes. His rebellious nature is further exposed as his career progresses and he confronts and explores societal taboos. Although much of Hess' subject matter is challenging, he also employs humor to great end, leavening work that is sometimes very dark. His stylistic influences are many, reflecting both his formal studies and his extensive travels. During his time studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, he received the Theodor K rner award. In the 1990s, he spent a year in residency in Iran on a J. Paul Getty Fellowship. More recently Hess painting was chosen as the cover art for the book Realismus in Der Bildenden Kunst (Realism in the Visual Arts Europe and N. America 1830 2000, Gebr. Mann
