MLB’s Keith Hernandez / Remembering Pitcher Jim Bouton & Actor Rip Torn

The former first baseman played on championship teams with the Cardinals and Mets, and made a memorable appearance on ‘Seinfeld.’ His memoir, now out in paperback, is ‘I’m Keith Hernandez.’

MLB pitcher Jim Bouton, who died Wednesday, spoke to ‘Fresh Air’ in 1986 about his 1970 tell-all memoir, ‘Ball Four,’ in which he drew on his seven years with the Yankees to offer an insider’s guide to baseball.

Actor Rip Torn, who died Tuesday, won an Emmy Award for playing the gruff producer Artie on ‘The Larry Sanders Show.’ In 1994, he told Terry Gross that he based his character on Johnny Carson’s long time producer.

Also, critic John Powers reviews ‘London Kills,’ about a Scotland Yard team led by a detective whose wife has gone missing.
