An excerpt from Jeff Pearlman’s new e book particulars when Bo Jackson needed to kill Kevin Seitzer.
“Bo!” screamed Bob Schaefer, the first-base coach. “Bo! Bo! Let him go! Bo!”
Jackson wasn’t listening. He was overcome by rage. An excessive amount of Kevin Seitzer. His arms, Schaefer recalled, gave the impression to be rising in thickness by the second. The veins bulged from his left bicep.
“The more durable I squeezed, his eyes rolled again in his head,” Jackson stated. “And the more durable they pulled on me, the stiffer my arm received.”
By now Seitzer’s ft had been off the bottom. His face was purplish-blue.
“It was like a horror film,” stated Tartabull. “Bo was Jason in Friday the thirteenth, and Kevin was the camp child about to be murdered.”
