Here’s some excellent late-night reading for you night owls. Jack Dickey profiled former Yankee Gary Sheffield for Sports on Earth, looking at his life after retiring from baseball as a player. Sheff is now a player agent with a myriad of investments and businesses around the Tampa area, where he lives. He talked about what he feels was his underappreciated playing career — “In my mind, I know I won five MVPs. I was a better player most times than most of the MVPs were.” — his children, his business plans, all sorts of stuff. It’s a fantastic read and it gets RAB’s highest level of recommendation, so make sure you check it out.
