Known as "Gator" and "Louisiana Lightning," Ron Guidry was the ace of the Yankees' pitching staff during the team's notorious 1970s-80s incarnation. In 1978, Guidry went 25-3 and won the Cy Young Award, helping to bring home the Yankees' second straight World Series championship. Here Guidry takes us inside the clubhouse to tell us what it was like to play amidst the chaos, as manager Billy Martin battled George Steinbrenner and star slugger Reggie Jackson. Here too are tales of Lou Pinella, Willie Randolph, Bucky Dent, Catfish Hunter, Chris Chambliss, Mickey Rivers, and Yogi Berra, plus Guidry's poignant reflections on the 1979 death of catcher Thurman Munson and the impact that it had on the club.
