Summary: Wonderfully describes life as a pro ballplayer
Review: As a former teammate of Johnny Mo's, with the Cardinals and Phillies, I vividly recall many of the events he describes in his stories. These stories bring back so many memories - precious memories of the joys and pains experienced on the trek to become a major leaguer. I knew Johnny Mo was a great teammate and an outstanding individual, but I did not know he was such a wonderful storyteller! I could not put the book down. If you want a glimpse at the life of a baseball player - the life you never see on TV or in the movies, read this book.

Rating: 5 stars
Summary: Morris hits a homerun with first writing effort
Review: From the grind of the minor leagues to the thrill of playing in the World Series...John Morris knows baseball extemely well-having played 12 years with the Cardinals, Phillies and Angels. In his first book "Bullet Bob Comes to Louisville" Morris demonstrates a surprising strong talent as a writer and storyteller. The strength of his book comes from his ability to take his baseball experiences and interweave them with themes of everyday life. In his short story format (22 stories over a nine-inning game) Morris displays a wonderful balance of baseball humor, behind the scenes insight, and sensitive family issues relating to life and death. This book moves very quickly- which made it that much more enjoyable for me. (I read it from cover to cover in one sitting)Go buy it for yourself and your friends. You won't be disappointed!

Rating: 3 stars
Summary: Why Kant Johnny Spel Good?
Review: In his book, John Morris offers lots of amusing baseball anecdotes and one or two touching if maudlin family stories. However I have never seen so many spelling errors in one book (a short book at that!) in my life. Too bad.
