Aubrey Huff has always been controversial Just read the flurry of 1 star reviews that came flooding in one day from people that never even read the book but were angered by some of Aubrey s tweets They make for entertaining reading for sure Funnily enough as a result of the negative feedback from those that disagreed with Aubrey s opinions book sales for Baseball Junkie have seriously ramped up Some twitter trolls went as far as accusing Aubrey of being a racist privileged white dude But in reality Aubrey has never had it easy He grew up in a trailer park in a small Texas town His dad was brutally murdered by a white guy with a gun At age six he was suddenly thrust into the position of being the leader of his little family At age nine he decided to take matters in his own hands making a deal with his mom If she would buy him a baseball cage he would work tirelessly to become a professional baseball player He worked his heart out hitting 200 sometimes 300 balls a day in that cage seven days a week But that had little effect on his career in high school Aubrey did not stop there He fought and clawed his way into a junior college and worked twice as hard as everyone else to earn a place in the lineup at The U Nothing was ever handed to Aubrey on a silver platter Yes he finally made it to the big leagues but even then the demons he had to wrestle with on a daily basis crippled him After retirement Aubrey finds himself on his knees in his bedroom closet one evening weeping a loaded 357 Magnum pressed against his temple ready to end it all So that s the heart of this book Aubrey buries no one but himself in Baseball Junkie He draws an intimate portrait of life in the big leagues and bares all revealing the internal struggles he experienced taking the reader inside the complex life and mind of a man as he balances victories with the crippling demons of addiction divorce anxiety depression and feelings of inferiority It inspires the reader to seek more than what this world has to offer To rise above mediocrity achieving his or her true potential while staying focused on what really matters when the fame and excitement of the game fade with the sunset Best of all Baseball Junkie shows how we are all just human after all Susceptible to the traps life sets out for us and the landmines lowlife twitter trolls lay in our path
