Bouton pitched 10 years in the major leagues, including seven with the Yankees where he made one All-Star team and was a member of the 1962 World Series champions.
Jim Bouton has died at the age of 80.
Bouton later became a NY sportscaster before suffering two strokes in 2012.
Bouton injured his right arm in 1965, going 4-15 that season, and saw limited action the next three seasons with NY.
Born in Newark, New Jersey, Bouton was raised in New Jersey and the Chicago area.
On the diamond, Bouton debuted in 1962, and was known for his cap flying off his head as he delivered his fastball. He pitched at Western Michigan University before signing with the Yankees in 1958.

Fernandes has joined his teammates for pre-season training and is calm over the prospect of an impending exit, as per the report. He scored 32 goals in addition to 18 assists in 53 games in all competitions while playing for Sporting Lisbon last season.
Bouton, who was 21-7 with a 2.53 ERA for the Yankees in 1963 and 18-13 the following season, helping them to the World Series each season, had a lifetime record of 62-63 with a 3.57 ERA.
Arm problems derailed his career, and Bouton developed a knuckleball to hang on for a few more seasons.
But while the book, co-written with Leonard Shecter of the New York Post, was a critical hit, the amusing tales angered the baseball establishment and many former teammates.
"Ball Four" eventually led to Bouton being blacklisted by Major League clubs from 1970 until he was signed by the Chicago White Sox in April 1977, but he didn't get back to the big leagues that season, as he was released in May of that season after going 0-6 with a 5.26 ERA over 10 Double-A outings. He started five September games that season, going 1-3.
He was not invited back to Old-Timers' Day at Yankee Stadium until 1998, when owner George Steinbrenner extended an olive branch.
While Bouton was blacklisted, he wrote a sequel to "Ball Four" that was titled, "I'm Glad You Didn't Take It Personally".
But his book Ball Four (written with New York Post sportswriter Leonard Shecter) broke some of the sporting world's biggest taboos, revealing behind-the-scenes carousing by legends like Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris and Whitey Ford, and the widespread use of amphetamines by ballplayers.
