Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nice, pleasant Summertime Reading  May 21, 2005
"My Time at Bat" is the biography of Chuck Hinton, who played in the American League from 1961-1971. Most people identify Chuck as a former Washington Senator, though he also played for the Indians. It is no poor reflection on Hinton that MLBB was just then starting its' decline from the "Golden Era" of 1946-1960. Expansion had begun the inevitable dissolution of the talent pool. However many fine players from the 40s and 50s were still in uniform during Chuck's career. MTB is a leisurely account of Hinton's days in the minors, majors and the US Army. MTB is filled with helpful on the field and off the field tips to survival. One point is crystal clear: The pressure is intense-players must bear down, not get distracted. Few mistakes are tolerated on the Major League level. There are some minor detractions: The photos are not of a high quality and a tad too much time is devoted to Hinton family matters. These matters are common to many sports' tales. Perhaps players wish to impart the point that they are people too. Mr. Hinton struck this reviewer as a highly principled guy and a real family man. After his ML days, Chuck was the baseball coach at Howard University. His players must have had high graduation rates! This offering will not reach the piinacle of great sports literature. However, MTB is a nice pleasant leisurely read, just right, as it says above, for the Summertime.
 
A BOOK WELL WORTH READING  Nov 17, 2003
CHUCK HINTON WRITES ABOUT HIS LIFE AND CAREER IN BASEBALL. HIS STORY HAS A WHOLE LOT OF EXCELLENT INSIGHTS HOW TO PLAY AND IMPROVE YOUR ABILITIES AS A PLAYER. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY HE SHARES HIS LIFE AS A PERSON AND BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN. CHUCK HAS SOME GREAT OPINIONS, INSIGHTS, AND EXPERIENCES TO SHARE. I SAW CHUCK PLAY AS A MEMBER OF THE CLEVELAND INDIANS, HE WAS A SOLID AND RELIABLE PLAYER. HIS BOOK IS FROM THE HEART. THE ONLY COMPLAINT IS, TOO BAD THERE WASN'T MORE. CHUCK'S BOOK IS VERY HEART WARMING AND A BREATH OF FRESH AIR FROM TODAY'S SELF CENTERED AND GREEDY ATHLETES OF TODAY. BLESS YOU CHUCK.
 
Chuck Hinton...one of my favorites  Dec 14, 2002
Chuck Hinton is, to date, the best African-American ballplayer in Washington Senators history. He and Frank Howard are the two most remembered position players from the expansion years.
 
USA Today Sports Weekly  Dec 14, 2002
This autobiography looks back at the struggles and achievements of Chuck Hinton as a young African American ballplayer in the early 60's. He played a total of 11 seasons with four teams (and remains to this day the last Senator to bat over .300). Away from the playing field, Hinton founded the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association while guiding the Howard University baseball team to more wins than any other coach in school history. Through it all, Hinton has retained his warmth and enthusiastic spirit, an effusive nature that emanates throughout the book." -November 6 - 12, 2002
