"OZARK IKE Memories Of Fence Buster Gus Zernial" by Gus Zernial, with Ronnie Joyner & Bill Bozman. Gus Zernial was a true slugging star of the 1950's golden era of baseball. During that decade "Ozark Ike" belted 232 home runs which was good for third best in the American League. Only baseball Hall of Fame members Yogi Berra (256) and Mickey Mantle (252) hit more. After his big league baseball days were complete he went on to become a very successful sports broadcaster. Gus talks about life before, during and after baseball as he knew it, adding his thoughts on today's game and many other subjects.
