Curtis Charles Flood (January 18, 1938 – January 20, 1997) was an American baseball player. Flood was a three-time All-Star, a Gold Glove winner for seven consecutive seasons, and batted over. He led the National League (NL) in hits (211) in 1964 and in singles, 1963, 1964, and 1968.
For its era, the book is on a par with Bouton's Ball Four, though it doesn't get much past Flood's decision not to accept a trade from St. Louis to Philadelphia (after which, some years later, baseball's reserve clause was eliminated, allowing players to have some say as to where they played upon the end of a contract). It's total bullshit, though, that when you look up Curt Flood on this site the first book that turns up is Bunts by George Will.
The Way It Is" was published in 1971, as a watershed in baseball history was approaching. The late Curt Flood was not some dumb jock. This book is part autobiography and part polemic. Author Curt Flood, a baseball star, was challenging baseball's reserve clause in a lower federal court. Under the reserve clause, an owner had perpetual contract rights over a player once he was signed unless the player was released, which would normally constitute a group boycott under the antitrust laws. A great deal of what he writes about is now historical, yet it's interesting to see how things looked first hand then.

Who Curtis Charles Flood was and precisely his significance in baseball history is something that can't be understood just by looking at the record book. Not that Flood suffers from such an examination. He played 15 years from 1956 to 1971
Who Curtis Charles Flood was and precisely his significance in baseball history is something that can't be understood just by looking at the record book. He played 15 years from 1956 to 1971. He took the 1970 season off, which is something I'll discuss in a moment. 293, was a three-time All-Star, and, playing centerfield for the St. Louis Cardinals, won Gold Glove seven consecutive seasons, from 1963-1969. He was on three pennant-winning teams with the Cardinals and earned two World Series rings
Just better Curt Flood is a nonparticipating but pivotal character in the book Our Gang by Philip Roth.
Later that year Flood published a memoir entitled The Way It Is in which he spelled out in detail his argument against the reserve clause.
