It began as a fun filled stunt and came to a deeply hellish, nearly humiliating end. George Plimpton had the chance to answer every baseball fan's question: could I strike out a major league star? Out of My League chronicles what happened next as his inspired idea - to get on the mound and pitch a few innings to the All-Stars of the American and National Leagues - got seriously out of hand.
The original foray into participatory journalism that started it all, Out of my League announced George Plimpton as a giant of sports journalism, able to penetrate deep into the very spirit of sport, with his characteristic wit, charm and grace.
