Even Heroes Can Be Drunks
My Stepfather Was No Exception
My stepfather Eddie was an professional baseball player. He was also a raging alcoholic. Third base was his game, fueled by his nightly affair with the bottle.
From a young age, Eddie was an angry man who liked to fight. Coming from a poor family in Jersey, he was a scrapper, working hard to pull himself out of poverty. He was determined to get ahead, and if you crossed him, you’d better be prepared for a fight.
