Publisher's Summary

From a lead officer of Major League Baseball's Department of Investigations, the unprecedented and explosive inside story of the dark side of MLB and its complicity in computer hacking, human trafficking, and other shady dealings. Written with acclaimed and award-winning investigative journalists Teri Thompson and Christian Red.

Baseball Cop is the story of Eddie Dominguez, a decorated member of the Boston Police Department who worked for Major League Baseball first as a Resident Security Agent for the Boston Red Sox and then as an officer for the league's newly founded Department of Investigations (DOI).

In the DOI, Dominguez had a unique view into the dark side of America's pastime, examining scandals involving drug use, age and ID fraud, human trafficking, and cover-ups. Now he is prepared to share the secrets that came across his desk every day for six years.

As MLB disbanded DOI, it tried to control any information its investigators may have collected during their service. But Eddie Dominguez refused to fall in line and sign the Non-Disclosure Agreement given to the other DOI members who were terminated. As a result, every recollection in this audiobook is thus his to freely tell, and can be substantiated by others.

Baseball Cop is narrated in alternating first-and third-person chapters with Teri Thompson and Christian Red, co-authors of American Icon: The Fall of Roger Clemens and the Rise of Steroids in America's Pastime.

His insight is out of the park

As a police officer and former college baseball player in the mid 1990's I saw the explosion of steroids in MLB. Dominguez is a tell it like it is cop in the truest form. His book peels back the layers of doubt and deceit that MLB didn't trully want fans to know the truth, but wanted all of the cash brought in by the bigger, faster and stronger athletes. This is one of the best baseball books I've ever read. He pulls no punches when outlining the trouble with MLB and their continued steroid problem that they don't truly want to ever go away.

I believe it, PED’s are here to stay.

Good story on after the Mitchell report the MLB just wanted it to go away. And for the most part it has, did not care for the author as narrator. As an audible book, looking for a more soothing voice to wind down to, sorry Eddie you don’t have it :) As a fan of the game ( and Red Sox ) it will be hard for me to look at professional sports knowing the same thing is going on in the background and there respective leaderships really don’t want it fixed.

Outstanding!

Paints a candid picture of the less than heroic world inside the operation of the business of Major League Baseball over the past two decades.

Dirty world of MLB

This book does a great job of telling the story of how baseball is dirty but tries to act like it cares about cleaning up.
