SHARE The Entitled

The new book The Entitled follows a beleaguered baseball team manager and his struggle to deal with moral anxiety while remaining devoted to his dream job.

It's the work of Hall of Fame sportswriter and NPR commentator Frank Deford.

Deford uses his experience in the world of sports to reveal the ugly side, where athletes misuse their fame and influence… and managers and coaches turn a blind eye to this bad behavior in order to win.

Eight Forty-Eight's Richard Steele recently spoke with the legendary writer.

Deford says the real world of baseball informed and inspired his writing.
