From their origins to the highlights, these ten pitches have been passed down and evolved from one thrower to the next. If you like baseball, but don't really understand pitching or hitting this is a great book. Kepler details the purpose of each pitch, the mechanics of throwing, and game strategies of use. All the greats are called on to demonstrate: Ryan, Carlton, Paige, Johnson (Randy and Walter), Young (Cy and Curt), Bumgarner, Quisenbury, and many more. It's a well written explanation of the ten pitches that have made baseball from the fast ball to the spit ball. If you've wondered what pitches made Warren Spahn or Whitey Ford great, read this book.

Okay, I didn't read the book but I did buy it. I got it for my dad for christmas,but the real gift was,the personalized signiture from Bucky Fox. I found his web page and left a message for him,I really didn't think I would hear from him. Two to three days later he called me up at home to discuss the best way of doing this,we don't live in the same state,but we were going to my folks home for the holdays and only a hour away from Mr. Fox.It was two days till christmas but he called back and we made plans for the next day.I'm greatful that this very busy man,and with chistmas eve the next night,took the time to invite us in his home, offer up some cocoa and have us sit down to visit.I knew he had places to go and people to meet so we didn't stay long.We shook hands and I said thank you.But what I should have done was to tell him that,that this year he was my Angel.Thank You Mr. Fox, my Dad loves it.

I can admit it now, but for a long period of my life, it was quite painful: I'm an Angels fan. Have been since the days of Bo Belinski. That's why I was delighted to see Bucky Fox's addition to the history, lore and trivia of my beloved Angels -- be they of Anaheim or Los Angeles. His book is crammed with stuff I didn't know or, in many cases, had forgotten. Like "Adam Kennedy's Reggie Moment," when Kennedy hit three dingers in Game 5 of the ALC championship series to beat the Twins. Or the key role played by the relatively unknown pitcher John Lackey in a number of major Angel wins (Game 7 of 2002 World Series, Game 4 of 2002 ALC championship, Game 2 of 2005 AL Division series). Bucky's book is filled with this stuff.

For a demented Angel fan, it's all pure gold.

Bucky Fox has done a terrific job of highlighting the top players, moments and memories of the Angels' storied past. This book is written in a short, punchy style that makes it a quick, easy read. It brings back memories for any Angels fan of the great moments in franchise history, and it reminds you that the Angels have a lot more high points in their history than you might think.

After reading this book, I felt delighted. I followed the Angels last year, and this drew me back into the excitement. The author wrote "The Highflying Angels" in a way that brought the action to life. I wanted it to be realistic, and it was. This is exactly the book I'd been waiting for as an Angels fan for a long time. I recommend this book to all Angels fans for safekeeping as a souvenir.

A must have for any Angels fan. A quick read but

literally "bases loaded" with information. A truely

informative and fun read from front to back! Marvelous

style and content from the past to the present. This book

is a hit with me and a "home run" for the Baseball fan at

heart.

I'm not an Angels fan. I'm a Yankees fan and what I want to know is why MY team doesn't have a kickass book like this. With his fast-paced, tightly-written countdown to victory, Fox does the seemingly impossible. He makes the Angels look like the Yankees. And for that, I tip my pro cap to him.

I love the style in which this book is written and all the cool facts that are new to me. I am a big Angels fan and this is my favorite book to date on them! Bucky Fox is a superb writer, sports or otherwise. I HIGHLY recommend this book!!
What a great read for Angels fans. It's jam-packed with interesting facts and stats. And Bucky Fox's fast-paced and witty style keeps you wanting more. From Gene Autry to Nolan Ryan to Darin Erstad, he's got the Angels covered.
