How to Write a Memoir Without Trashing Your Teammates
Angels broadcaster and former major league infielder Rex Hudler has written a memoir called Splinters. You can read more about Rex and his book at www.rexhudler.com.
The Orange County Register has a review by columnist Jeff Miller. Unlike some recently published player memoirs, Hudler chose not to go the low road. Miller writes:
His recently released memoir “Splinters” isn’t a tell-all, only a tell-some, and all the tales center on Hudler, who, as a player, liked to describe himself as being “bootleg” and, as a writer, says his favorite author is Dr. Seuss.
Some people would prefer to read trash about successful players because they think it makes that player no more successful than they are. Personally, I’d rather read a book by someone whose positive attitude made him a success, rather than dwelling on others’ inadequacies.
