Overview

Steve "Psycho" Lyons uses his patented Psycho-Meter to break down the 100 most famous and infamous moments in baseball history. And who better to chronicle baseball's history of outrageous personalities, plays, and pranks, than Lyons, the man who dropped his pants at first base and created perhaps the most outrageous moment of all time? Digging in and dusting off the annals of baseball history, he has researched the craziest moments in baseball ever, ranging from the hilarious to the ridiculous, from the incredible to the heroic, including Randy Johnson's unexpected and unbelieveable exploding bird, Clemens v. Piazza—rounds 1 and 2, the infamous Disco Demolition Night in Chicago, and the George Brett pine tar incident. From Babe Ruth's called home-run shot to the Steve Bartman fiasco, from Pete Rose bowling over Ray Fosse to Joba Chamberlain being attacked by insects, and from Pedro Martinez body slamming Don Zimmer to a team turning a triple play without ever touching the ball, The Psycho 100 has it all.
