Biography

American former Major League Baseball pitcher, nicknamed Spaceman. He played for the Boston Red Sox from 1969-1978 and the Montreal Expos from 1979-1982. On August 23, 2012, Lee signed a contract to play with the San Rafael Pacifics of the independent North American League at age 65.

In addition to his baseball experience, Lee is known for his counterculture behavior, his antics both on and off the field, and his use of the Leephus pitch, a personalized variation of the eephus pitch.

Lee has co-written four books: The Wrong Stuff; Have Glove, Will Travel; The Little Red (Sox) Book: A Revisionist Red Sox History; and Baseball Eccentrics: the Most Entertaining, Outrageous, and Unforgettable Characters in the Game. In 2006, the acclaimed documentary film by Brett Rapkin Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey featured Lee.
